Lindsay Hill is an educator, consultant, doula, mother, and Co-CEO of Threshold Philanthropy, a philanthropic start-up focused on co-creating liberatory grantmaking practices with Black and Native/Indigenous communities most impacted by racism, heterosexism, and extractive capitalism in Washington, North Carolina, and South Carolina. Threshold supports the radical transformation of these regions through the lens of reparations through our grantmaking, investment portfolios, voice and leadership, and as an employer. Lindsay supports the development and implementation of the overall vision, budget, grantmaking strategy, investment portfolio, and external voice for the organization.
Prior to this launch, she served as the director of diversity equity and inclusion at the Raikes Foundation.
