Christine Reeves Strigaro

Executive Director

The Sapelo Foundation

    Christine Reeves Strigaro is the Executive Director of The Sapelo Foundation, a private, family foundation based in Savannah, Georgia. On a mission for a just Georgia, Christine leverages every form of philanthropic capital – grant, endowment, human, partnership, advocacy, convening, strategy, and more. In doing so, she helps a dedicated and dynamic team build relationships, catalyze solutions for systemic problems, lift up Georgia as a destination for social and environmental justice, and embrace creativity and new ideas. With equal conviction, Christine believes philanthropy is a team sport for championing grantee partners and ensuring communities are participants and leaders, not only recipients. Active in national and Georgia communities, Christine serves on the board of Funders Committee for Civic Participation, public policy committee of Georgia Grantmakers Alliance, and steering committee of Georgia Funders Network for Racial Equity. Previously, she served as Director of Foundation Programs at Alliance for Justice and Senior Field Associate at National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy. She also served on the boards of Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy and Alliance for Nonprofit Management. Christine graduated Phi Beta Kappa and magna cum laude from Emory University in Atlanta, GA. She earned her master’s degree from Duke University’s Terry Sanford School of Public Policy in Durham, NC.
