Meet the Donor Community

Theo is a member of Resource Generation’s CORE Advisory Committee, which seeks to build community for, and engage young people of color with wealth in, social justice philanthropy. Some of her interests include food justice and food sovereignty, the disability rights and harm reduction movements, and activist-led giving models. Theo is also interested in connections between emotional well-being and the practice of generosity.
“I’m excited about being a member of Astraea because of the amazing group of grantees I help support and the activist-led grantmaking process through which they are selected.
In the U.S., organizations such as Southerners on New Ground and The Audre Lorde Project are precisely the kinds of organizations I am looking to fund––organizations led by people of color with strategies targeting social and economic injustices that particularly affect the queer, people-of-color community.
I also really appreciate Astraea’s international grantmaking because I want to fund LGBTI community and support services internationally and trust Astraea’s knowledge and experience.”
