Our 23-Year Perspective on Philanthropy

Since returning to the United States in 2000 after living in Guangzhou, China and Hong Kong, social entrepreneur Christine Sevier Gavin has worked passionately and tirelessly in philanthropy. Because we have worked within lower socioeconomic, multiethnic, multifaith, multigenerational, and other diverse communities, we have witnessed the depth of social inequities and funding disparities that these communities often face. From a professional perspective and lived experience, we know how the need for social mobility impacts our communities in multilocal and multivocal ways.
