F4CR is driven by a small team from diverse backgrounds

Our team members come from across the U.S. and around the world. They have experience in nonprofit management, corporate partnerships, poverty reduction, UN partnerships, fundraising, hospitality, coalition-building, and more. This geographic and topical diversity allows us to take on climate restoration with a broad range of tools and perspectives.
