As a Program Lead at the Walter & Elise Haas Fund, Stephanie Rapp oversees portfolios in Jewish Life, Disaster Preparedness and Safety Net. She supports efforts to connect the Jewish community with other faith communities and build interfaith partnerships that work for social justice, and that recognize the diversity of the American Jewish community. She created the Disaster Preparedness portfolio to help local non profits become more resilient, and co-created the Safety Net portfolio, which fights homelessness and hunger.
Her past work includes stints at the UN, and she led the UN50 Committee, which planned the 50th anniversary of the founding of the UN in San Francisco. Married to a filmmaker and mom to a high schooler, Stephanie is a frequent contributor to KQED, the Bay Area’s public radio station.
