Wendy Liscow to leave the Dodge Foundation after 17 years

Posted Nov. 13, 2020 

Wendy Liscow is leaving the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation after 17 years of service to pursue other opportunities.

During her tenure, Wendy has worked in Dodge’s Arts grantmaking area, then went on to lead Dodge’s Education and Technical Assistance programs. She has been a champion of the transformative power of arts education both for students and educators and has led statewide initiatives advancing arts integration and culturally relevant and responsive practices, especially for children attending our state’s most historically under-resourced school districts. She has also developed sequential adult learning opportunities to help ensure nonprofit staff and boards deepen their organizational impact and has most recently helped Dodge launch new equity-focused training series.

After receiving her Education degree from the University of Michigan, and prior to joining the Foundation staff in 2003, Wendy worked for 25 years as a professional theatre administrator, director, and producer. She was associate artistic director, dramaturg, and resident director of George Street Playhouse in New Brunswick for 12 years, and then served as the director of programs and services for the New Jersey Theatre Alliance. She has served on many boards and committees over the years, most recently on the Arts Education Partnership’s newly established Equity Committee, the Arts Education Impact group at Grantmakers for Education, Arts Ed Newark, Arts for Any Given Child Trenton, and the Newark STEAM coalition. She is a proud graduate of Lead New Jersey and a founding board member of the Metuchen Farmers Market in her hometown.

We thank Wendy for her service to the Foundation and her commitment to and thought leadership with many Dodge grantee partners.
