A Fresh Perspective for AJF
Christy Eckoff brings a new perspective and a passion for charitable giving to Atlanta Jewish Foundation.
Christy Butler Eckoff, our new Chief Foundation Officer, comes to us from the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta where she was Managing Director, Philanthropic Counsel. Her new role with Atlanta Jewish Foundation comes with a bold mandate to make AJF the go-to place for planned giving, asset management and Jewish generosity. We’re thrilled that she’s here!
Born in Providence, RI and raised in Winston Salem, NC, Christy has always had an awareness of what philanthropy can do. She was a founding member of the service club at her high school and an active volunteer and fundraiser in her college sorority. “I really don’t know when the spark started for me, but I’ve always been interested in philanthropy and helping others,” Christy said. “It’s the reason I pursued a law degree — to help people.”
