Antony Chiang


President of the Foundation since 2010,  Antony has championed the practice of “Philanthropy 3.0”: doing whatever it takes to achieve measurable impact.  Under his leadership, EHF has catalyzed a number of innovative public-private collaborations that have achieved measurable results in reducing the rate of uninsured, decreasing childhood obesity, mitigating the effects of childhood trauma or adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), increasing the pipeline of primary care providers, and improving other health outcomes in the region.  These partnerships have allowed EHF to grow its managed funds by 900% in the last two years, helping move the needle on some of Eastern Washington’s most pressing health issues.

In 2013, Antony was proud to accept on behalf of the Foundation the Secretary's Award for Public Philanthropic Partnership, presented by HUD Secretary Donovan and the Council of Foundations ("COF") in recognition of "an exemplary public-philanthropic partnership which has transformed the relationship among the sectors, led to measurable benefits for residents and community, and serves as a role model for other communities".  He was also honored with the 2012 Annual Public Health Leader Award by the Washington State Public Health Association.

Antony is a member of Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Culture of Health Prize national Advisory Group, and serves on the board of Grantmakers in Health.  Regionally, he also serves on the board of Philanthropy Northwest, as well as several statewide leadership boards including both the Governor's Council for the Healthiest Next Generation and the Governor’s Opportunity Scholarship Board. Antony is a frequent keynote speaker and panelist at philanthropy and health conferences.

Prior to working at EHF, Antony was an executive at a leading philanthropic service provider, designing and managing innovative models of corporate technology philanthropy and streamlining international grant making.  In addition, he has served as the chief executive of several social enterprise start-ups and practiced corporate venture capital law.  Antony earned his B.S. in Electrical Engineering/Computer Science from UC Berkeley and his J.D. from Stanford Law School.
