Lori Fuller, the director of evaluation and learning for the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust, has been working to improve community health and well-being since college, when she worked as an in-house staff member at Prodigals Community while attending Wake Forest University. Since coming to the Trust in 1999, she has played a critical role in improving grantmaking strategy. Specifically, Lori has built the Trust’s evaluation capacity, improved the grant and knowledge management processes, and served as a key coach and advisor as the staff navigated the Trust’s transition from a traditional charitable funder to a dynamic, strategic foundation focused on impact.
Before she came to the Trust, Lori worked for the Department of Social Services in both Georgia and North Carolina. Originally from Cobb County, Georgia, Lori earned a Master of Social Work at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a Master of Business Administration at Wake Forest University. She also holds an undergraduate degree in Biology from Wake Forest University. Lori was named a Truman Scholar during her junior year, a national distinction awarded to top students who have leadership capabilities and a dedication to public service. Lori and her wife, Eva, live in Winston-Salem and enjoy trying to keep up with their energetic son, Brock.
