As chairman and CEO of the Heckscher Foundation for Children, Peter Sloane is deeply committed to enhancing educational opportunities for young people. Under his leadership, the foundation underwrites venture philanthropy to help level the playing field for underserved youth, principally in New York. He has a long history of senior management capacities for non-profit organizations and was a founding trustee of several pioneering New York-based non-profits dedicated to nurturing youth of diverse backgrounds.
Fundamental to his work is his belief that “every one of us has an obligation to leave the campsite better than we found it.”*
