Elspeth Revere

Ravenswood Consulting Group

I am the President of Ravenswood Consulting Group where I design, document, and implement projects on effective philanthropy, strategic planning, and nonprofit management. Recently, I have been working with two nonprofit arts groups on strategic plans, serving as interim program officer for a foundation, and conducting other projects related to the arts in Chicago.  I serve on the Boards of Kartemquin Films and the Center for Public Integrity.

I retired from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation at the end of 2015 after 24 years, where I was Vice President of Media, Culture, and Special Initiatives.  My responsibilities included support for journalism, documentary films, and media in a technologically changing environment, the arts in Chicago, the MacArthur Awards for Creative and Effective Institutions, Discovery grants, and a changing set of special initiatives – most recently on strengthening American democracy.
