MENLO PARK, Calif. – Fay Twersky, an expert on philanthropy and the nonprofit sector, will extend her role as senior fellow at the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation into the fall of 2013, Foundation officials announced today. Working with the Hewlett Foundation’s incoming president, Larry Kramer, who assumes his position in September, Twersky will continue the work she began with departing president Paul Brest and the Foundation’s program teams to refine and consolidate the Foundation’s efforts to measure the progress and effectiveness of its grant portfolios. She also will continue to consult with Foundation colleagues on a variety of topics related to the practice of philanthropy, and to spend some time writing and offering reflections to the field on issues that face both nonprofit and philanthropic institutions.
