Jack McCurley

SVP, Chief of People and Advancement

To me, social justice is about putting words into action. It’s about listening first, then empowering communities with the support they need to cultivate leaders from within. Liberty Hill has been a beacon of hope and progressive change for more than 40 years, and I am honored to help drive this transformative legacy into the future.

Jack is the Chief Advancement Officer at the Liberty Hill Foundation. His work in fundraising and nonprofit management spans more than a decade, and he has led successful teams at respected local and national organizations including Griffith Observatory and United Way. Most recently, he served as Vice President of Advancement for The Trevor Project, the only nationally accredited organization specializing in suicide prevention and crisis intervention for LGBTQ young people. Jack empowers his teams to achieve limitless accomplishments by focusing on quality, technology and sustainability—and encouraging donors and philanthropists to create and hone their own unique story.

An Arizona native, Jack moved to California in 2012 to pursue philanthropy and his appreciation for hiking and exploring the outdoors. He holds an undergraduate degree in Music and a Masters in Human Services and Executive Leadership.
