The Mayor’s Fund for Philadelphia, the nonprofit that serves as a fiscal administrator of private and philanthropic funds to build the capacity of City programs and advance strategic goals, has selected Jody Greenblatt to lead the organization. Greenblatt’s appointment comes after significant changes were instituted at the fund, including the appointment of a new and expanded board of directors and other efforts to establish an independent relationship with City Hall.
Greenblatt most recently served as the deputy chief for climate and safety at the School District of Philadelphia — a position she took after completing a three-year fellowship at the School District of Philadelphia through the Stoneleigh Foundation.
Greenblatt has also held youth-focused roles within the Court of Common Pleas (Family and Criminal Divisions) and the City of Philadelphia’s law department, and served as a consultant for the Southeast Regional Office of Children, Youth, and Families of the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services. She holds a bachelor’s degree in sociology from the University of Pennsylvania and a JD from the University of Michigan Law School.
