Geoffrey M. Glick heads up the philanthropy team – providing strategic leadership to secure funding from leading philanthropists, concerned citizen-stewards, corporate and foundation partners, and government agencies to advance the essential mission of American Forests. He has had extensive leadership experience supporting mission-driven organizations across a range of sectors, including education, the environment, humanitarian aid, and the arts.
During his years at the International Rescue Committee and Action Against Hunger, Geoffrey witnessed first-hand how humanitarian crises were often shaped, exacerbated, and/or caused by the impact of a changing climate on under-resourced communities. While at New York Restoration Project, he was proud to be part of the team that helped New York City complete the MillionTrees campaign. Prior to joining American Forests, Geoffrey served as Vice President of External Relations for Macaulay Honors College at CUNY. He holds a graduate degree in film from Columbia University and earned his BA from Bard College at Simon’s Rock.
