MEET STEVEN COUFAL, LEGACY COLLECTIVE BOARD MEMBER!
for July 6, 2020
Hey all! My name is Steven Coufal and I’ve been on the board of Legacy Collective for about two years now! I originally got involved because I love the focus on providing funding to worthy organizations that are trying to solve some of today’s most pressing challenges, with an eye towards sustainability. It’s been awesome to see Legacy Collective support many amazing organizations throughout the years, due to all the contributions from our amazing community!
I’ve worked with various non-profits in the past, both as a volunteer/intern at Invisible Child and as part time staff with Austin Civic Orchestra, so I have some insight into what organizations need to thrive.
One of the organizations Legacy Collective has supported and I am a huge fan of is Code2College. Their focus on sustainability setting up young kids with education and employment opportunities that will not only change their lives, but the lives of their families and communities, is just so cool to me.
Another that jumps to mind is Deeds not Words which we supported via Philanthropitch. Their focus on empowering young women to lead on a variety of issues is going to have a positive impact for all society for years to come, and I’m so proud that we were able to support their work.
During the day I lead a team of talented Marketers who focus on Search Engine Optimization for Gartner and some of our supported brands. Digital marketing is a real passion and I’m so lucky that I get to do it every day. Trying to understand Google’s algorithm is truly a brain-twister!
