She has been a recipient of philanthropic funds during her years as a foster youth in Los Angeles, a grant-seeker as a nonprofit employee, and now a grantmaker whose passion is to support young people in making a difference through philanthropy. Alexis sees philanthropy as a privilege, and works toward creating a grantmaking culture that is brave, empowering, and focused on the liberation of all people.
