Lorii Rabinowitz, Chief Executive Officer
Start Date: 2017

Growing up in New Mexico as the daughter of educators, Lorii has always sought new, comprehensive ways to build pathways to success by providing access to opportunity. With a natural curiosity and zest for learning, Lorii manifests this passion through her work with Denver Scholarship Foundation (DSF) and her volunteer efforts throughout the community. After receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from the University of New Mexico, Lorii started her nonlinear professional path in the private and nonprofit sectors with work ranging from media and business development to strategic partnerships, organizational optimization and start-ups. A connector by instinct and later by trade, Lorii has a particular affinity for linking people to each other, and their goals, while simultaneously building relationships and co-creating future successes with diverse groups of stakeholders. The customized approach to student success designed and implemented by DSF, combined with the stellar team, extraordinary Scholars, dedicated Board and community partners drew Lorii into the greatest opportunity of her life, to serve as the organization's CEO.
