Director of Grantmaking & Community Impact
Drew joined the Arthur Dean Family Foundation in January of 2021. Drew has a background in grantmaking and social impact work from spending the previous 15 years in philanthropy and government, and has led community investment strategies at the neighborhood, municipal and federal levels. For the past several years, Drew has managed a philanthropic portfolio that has been committed to equity and included education, youth development, economic self-sufficiency, and workforce development and is excited to leverage this experience to advance the Arthur Dean Family Foundation’s mission in a trust-based way. A native of Indianapolis, Drew is grateful for the opportunity to support and partner with the brilliant leaders of the region’s public sector to produce equitable outcomes so that all our residents may thrive. Outside of work, Drew’s passions are spending time with his family, coaching his son’s tee-ball team, traveling and listening to podcasts while walking his 10-year-old black lab, Lola.
