Meet the 2023-24 Hull Fellows Class!

Philanthropy Southeast is proud to announce the members of the incoming 2023-24 Hull Fellows Class! These 32 leaders have been selected as the next participants of the Southeast's premier philanthropic leadership program. Following a kickoff at this year's Annual Meeting, they will engage in a year-long journey that will help them determine their own approach to leadership while also preparing to address the issues facing philanthropy and our region in the years and decades ahead.

Once their Hull experience is complete, the members of this new class will join a group of more than 300 Hull Alumni, many of whom are serving today as CEOs and senior executives at foundations and other charitable sector organizations throughout the region.
