Angie Chen, Executive Director for Skyline Foundation

Angie Chen
Executive Director

As a daughter of immigrants, Angie is grateful to work at an organization that redistributes wealth to address systemic problems and create a more just future. She believes in a future where everyone lives in healthy and equitable communities, and decisions are made by the community, for the community.

“I’m excited about the board’s sense of urgency and commitment to trusting the foundation’s grantee partners and the experience and energy that our team brings to this work,” says Angie. As Executive Director, she collaborates with the board, supports the team, and aligns Skyline’s work with the foundation’s vision and values.

Angie has a Master of Public Policy from UC Berkeley and a Bachelor of Environmental Science and Public Policy from Harvard University. Most recently, she was Director of Programs at the Libra Foundation, where she managed grantmaking, communications, and funder organizing to shift resources and build power in communities that experience the greatest impacts of systemic oppression. Prior, Angie held grantmaking roles at multiple foundations and co-founded and led a national funder collaborative. She has volunteered with nonprofit and philanthropic organizations locally and nationally, and she currently serves on the board of Asian Pacific Environmental Network (APEN). Before working in philanthropy, Angie was a fundraiser for a community-based organization.

A Bay Area local, Angie loves the outdoors, and she is happiest on a foggy beach or surrounded by tall trees. She lives in San Francisco with her family, including their ball-obsessed dog.
