Liana Krupp is the President and Trustee of the Krupp Family Foundation, which focuses its work on capacity building and community partnerships across the Jewish, food and arts sectors. She is deeply involved in the Foundation’s strategic work and is a patron of the arts nationally and internationally. In her work, Liana finds new ways of connecting racial and economic equity as well as broadening racial and gender representation in the organizations she is involved with. It has empowered her to step beyond the traditional role of a grant maker, to become an active ally, advocate and adviser to the partners the Foundation supports.
Krupp began her career in the fashion department at Interview Magazine. After her time at Interview, she worked as a stylist, writer, and TV producer in New York City before relocating to Boston. There she lent her expertise to digital publishing, communications, and PR, and created a long-running news site for the creative industry in New England. She now directs the Krupp Family Foundation’s work full time, alongside her other philanthropic endeavors including: the Curators Circle for the Fashion & Textile Arts Department at MFA Boston; New England Foundation for the Arts Advisory Council; Boston Arts Academy Fashion Technology Advisory Council; Board of Trustees at Ballroom Marfa (TX); Chinati Contemporary Council (TX); and Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Leadership Council.
Liana currently divides her time between Boston and the west side of Los Angeles with her husband, Michael, and daughter, Frankie.
