Welcome, friends of

General Service Foundation

Nearly a year ago, our executive director Lani Shaw passed away of natural causes at her home in Aspen, Colorado. Lani was a valued mentor and dear friend to us all, and is deeply missed.

Since her passing, the GSF board and staff have come together with compassion and perseverance to recognize the work ahead and celebrate our commitment to GSF's mission. We're excited to move forward and grateful every day for Lani's vivid legacy. She is present in who we've become as a foundation, how we plan for the future, and the ways we do our work.

Our interim executive director is Crystal Plati, a former GSF board member and social justice/nonprofit expert. We've begun searching for a new executive director and would appreciate your help making the opportunity known. Please share the position specification with your networks and contact our search firm directly to express any interest.

Grantseekers: our next letter of inquiry deadline is September 1, 2015. Our upcoming board meetings are May and November 2015. We're currently creating a new GSF website. In the meantime, please see the current site for guidelines and an online application. For questions, please contact Sara Samuels, sara@generalservice.org.
