ALICIA PHILIPP is president of the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta, a philanthropic anchor institution dedicated to strengthening the Atlanta region. In 2020 she celebrates her 43rd year with the Foundation, which in its history has given away more than $1.7 billion to nonprofit organizations in the Atlanta region, throughout the U.S. and across the globe.

She leads a team of experts that strengthen the 23-county Atlanta region by inspiring philanthropy to increase the vitality of our region and the well-being of all residents. The Foundation grants out more than $110 million annually to thousands of nonprofit organizations.

Philipp has served on the board of the Council on Foundations, the Southeastern Council of Foundations, Independent Sector and the National Center on Family Philanthropy. Accolades are too many to mention, though this year she was honored by the YWCA as the “Woman of Achievement” and by Atlanta magazine’s Atlanta 500 as its superlative.

Philipp received a bachelor’s degree from Emory University and an MBA from Georgia State University. She lives in Decatur and has two adult children and one grandson, all of whom live in Europe. Philipp has announced that she plans to retire in 2020 and the Board of the Community Foundation will choose a successor.
