Position

Vice President, Marketing & Communications

Bio

During my 35 years in marketing and communications, nothing has been more rewarding than telling The Foundation’s story over the past two decades that I’ve worked here. Sharing the uplifting stories of our donors and grantees is so inspiring. Helping to raise our profile and support our efforts in tikkun olam has been the highlight of my career.

Lew Groner joined The Foundation in 1999 to lead its marketing and communications initiatives, and develop a clear, distinct and contemporary brand image in the philanthropic marketplace. With more than 30 years of marketing experience, his portfolio includes all branding, marketing, advertising, publicity and online activity for The Foundation; helping it maintain a brand leadership position in a very competitive nonprofit environment. Prior to joining The Foundation, Lew spent 15 years in corporate marketing and advertising, working for J. Walter Thompson, an international ad agency, and Experian, a credit and information services company. Lew graduated from the University of Illinois in Chicago with a bachelor’s degree in political science and Judaic studies.
