Anna Bobb: Philanthropy Roundtable Director of Health Programs


My Native Admission Statement: At The Philanthropy Roundtable, we are conveners, collaborators, thought partners,and consultants to like-minded donors. A common thread throughout my career has been my drive to build consensus solutions, enlist cooperative relationships, and build coalitions focused on goals larger than any one organization. In formative consulting roles, I developed a strong ethic of client service towards the pharmaceutical, managed care, and health system executives I served. A second phase of my career focused on raising philanthropic capital to provide HIV medications, micro-loans, scholarships, and hope to individuals who had lost everything — in communities across the country and world. My work today focuses on unleashing the power of philanthropic capital for social impact. My emphasis is on innovation — identifying the social entrepreneurs and best-in-class non-profits that can drive ground-up change.

Ideal experience for a customer/client?:

Our clients are philanthropists. We serve our philanthropists with customized consultation and critical insight from leading philanthropists and practitioners; solicitation-free convenings on a range of cutting-edge topics in health; and working groups that facilitate joint funding efforts to solve some of our nation’s most pressing health problems. Based on demand from donors, the Health Program is releasing a briefing this month that showcases thoughtful approaches to addressing the mental health crisis in this country. We also provide a service by hosting invitation-only conference calls that allow like-minded donors to hear from leading experts in the field of health and ask their questions.
