Jennifer Ratay to head Silicon Valley Social Venture Fund

Jennifer Ratay will join the Silicon Valley Social Venture Fund (SV2) as executive director in March. Ms. Ratay has served as program officer in the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation's Effective Philanthropy Group since 2007.

At the foundation she directed its multi-million dollar organizational effectiveness grants program.

"Jennifer's exceptional experience in philanthropy, coupled with her vibrant enthusiasm and deep passion for creating social impact, perfectly qualify her to take the helm of SV2," said Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen, founder of SV2 in 1998.

Ms. Ratay holds a master's degree in public affairs from Princeton University and a bachelor's degree in government from Dartmouth College.
