Director of Program Strategy

Marguerite Casey Foundation

    Estevan Muñoz-Howard is the Director of Program Strategy at the Marguerite Casey Foundation, which supports leaders, scholars and initiatives focused on building power for communities that have been excluded from shaping how society works and from sharing in its rewards and freedoms. Prior to joining MCF, he was a senior program officer at the Piper Fund, leading the fund’s Money in Politics Reform grantmaking program. During his tenure, Estevan organized donors, convened field partners, and helped raise and steward funding for community-based organizations working to build durable power for communities of color and create the inclusive democracy our nation has never had.

    Estevan also serves on the advisory board for the Funders’ Committee for Civic Participation, and as co-chair of the Progress Alliance of Washington.

    Estevan is a tireless organizer and advocate for inclusive representation and racial equity in our democracy. He has been working to amplify the voices of BIPOC communities for over 15 years, and helped lead the successful Honest Elections Seattle campaign of 2015—the historic initiative to implement the world’s first Democracy Voucher program.

    Before joining the Piper Fund, Estevan worked as development director for Arts Corps and Social Justice Fund NW, and as executive director of the Youth Media Institute. He is passionate about democracy, community organizing, and the diffusion of power. Estevan is a graduate of the University of Puget Sound.
