A Conversation with Fred Ali and Miguel A. Santana, the Weingart Foundation’s Incoming President and C.E.O.

This past September, we announced that our long-time President and C.E.O., Fred Ali, will be stepping down as head of the Weingart Foundation. Effective January 25, 2021, Fred will be succeeded by Miguel A. Santana, the recent President and C.E.O. of Fairplex and former City Administrative Officer of the City of Los Angeles.

With the new year around the corner, we wanted to give our partners and others in the nonprofit and philanthropic community across Southern California an opportunity to get to know Miguel. In this recent recorded conversation, Fred and Miguel explore Miguel’s background, his interest in working in philanthropy, and how he sees community voice shaping his new role.
