Kevin Allan is Chief Executive Officer at Changing Our World. Kevin has spent his entire career in social impact, as both a practitioner and a consultant.
Kevin assumed his current role in 2023, one year after returning to the firm where he had previously spent a decade establishing our West Coast presence and leading our global health and development practice. He led Changing Our World’s work with The Global Fund during its 2010 $13 billion replenishment as well as multiple engagements with UNICEF and several of its national committees. Kevin has counseled CEOs and fundraising leaders, led studies, campaigns, and strategic planning efforts, and supported board development and engagement for clients including California State Parks Foundation, Stand Up 2 Cancer, the U.S. Green Building Council, Texas Children’s Hospital, the National 4H Council, and YMCA of Greater New York.
Kevin has headed vibrant development and private sector engagement programs at organizations as diverse as those he has counseled – The Culinary Institute of America, Children’s Aid, and Americares, where he oversaw all private support, including more than $575 million in annual product donations from pharmaceutical and medical supply manufacturers.
A San Francisco native, Kevin holds an M.S. in Nonprofit Management from The New School and later taught in the program. Prior to his first tenure at Changing Our World, he was the Development Director at a community foundation, supported the charitable activities of a family office, and worked with Project Concern International in India, an experience that ignited his passion for helping organizations do more for vulnerable populations. He is the Chair of Dutchess Tourism, Dutchess County’s official destination marketing organization, and is an avid, if amateur, cook and gardener.
