The William Penn Foundation named Elliot Weinbaum as chief philanthropy officer.

As CPO, Weinbaum will oversee an annual grant budget of more than $120 million and lead the foundation’s core grantmaking activities. He will work with staff in the Creative Communities, Great Learning and Watershed Protection programs to identify innovative new streams of work, advance cross-programmatic opportunities and ensure impactful grantmaking.

“I am honored to lead the team of thoughtful, dedicated, and creative William Penn Foundation staff who use data, research, and community input to support efforts to improve water quality, strengthen educational opportunities and outcomes, and enhance access to arts and public space,” Weinbaum said.

Weinbaum previously served as program director for the Great Learning program for almost nine years. He oversaw about $33 million in annual grantmaking to increase access to high-quality early learning opportunities for children and support high school students.
