About Me



Gwenn proactively communicated with me as a grantee and was efficient and responsive when I had questions. Not only was Gwenn always deeply professional in our interactions, but she also radiated joy. It was clear that she enjoyed supporting organizations like mine in doing our best work. She was ‘all in’ with the mission of the Replogle Foundation, and I have no doubt she will be an extraordinary team member at whatever organization she joins.
- Michelle Chalmers, Permanency Innovation and Consultation Director, Ampersand Families

Over the course of 15 years, I observed how Gwenn contributed her experience and knowledge to our community of funders, demonstrating a desire to build the capacity of peer organizations. She is inquisitive and proactive about new ways to make her own organization more efficient and more impactful for the nonprofits it serves.

I have known and worked with Gwenn Gebhard for more than two decades.  I have always been impressed by Gwenn’s intellect, her attention to detail, and her commitment to understanding the nuances of every project we have worked on together.  Gwenn has a vast knowledge of the non-profit community in the Washington DC area and is able to translate that knowledge into concrete recommendations about how to advance the interests of members of that community.  Gwenn’s leadership and organizational skills are evidenced in her successful management of a multimillion dollar foundation and those same skills can help to advance the interests of any firm or organization lucky enough to work with Gwenn in the future.
