Rebecca Gillette Brondfield

Principal, San Francisco
What I care about: The individuals and groups who dedicate their lives to driving social change are a constant source of inspiration. I am passionate about supporting them and building the capacity of individuals, organizations, and communities to drive impact.

What I bring to this work: My whole career has been focused in the social sector, first as a nonprofit practitioner working in health, education, and youth development before becoming an advisor. I bring empathy from those experiences and a commitment to supporting visionary leaders and communities in building a better, more equitable future.
My favorite projects: I’ve loved coaching executive teams through our Leading for Impact® program and supporting innovative philanthropists and nonprofits working to support the healthy development of young people (including organizations like Centering Healthcare Institute and EL Education).

My expertise: Strategic clarity, early childhood development, sourcing and diligence
What I do outside the office: I’m an avid baker and aspiring floral designer, so I spend my weekends scouring San Francisco’s farmers markets for inspiration and ingredients.

Education: I received a BA in Government from Harvard University and an MBA from the Yale School of Management, where I also co-led the Net Impact chapter.
