President of Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta, Alicia Philip, has led the nonprofit for over 4o years and is now one of the most influential organizations to serve the greater Atlanta area. Managing over $1 Billion in assets, the nonprofit spreads its philanthropic wealth to strengthen the greater Atlanta communities and empower individuals. Alicia was born and raised in an idyllic household in Townsend, Maryland (and she still loves a good crab cake!) the youngest of three children. Her biggest philanthropic influence was her mom who “was a big giver of her time and volunteered to scrub the Catholic church floors which showed the importance of doing something for someone else which has nothing to do with you.” After graduating from Catholic high school and even attended two years of an all-girls Catholic college, she moved to Atlanta “pretty randomly” and transferred to Emory University. During the 1970’s and 80’s, “women didn’t have a lot of confidence or role models to see what it’s possible in the professional working world so it meant everything to have an amazing mentor like Dan Sweat.” Alicia makes time for college graduates to “pay it forward to talk about their civic responsibility and civic life” and creating social good legacy with the next generation.
