The People

Regan Gruber Moffitt

Chief Strategy Officer

(pronouns: she/her/hers)

Regan is the people person. At the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation, she supports a high-functioning team of staff and consultants that is equipped, empowered, and entrusted to make the Foundation’s vision of a thriving, prosperous Arkansas that benefits all Arkansans a reality.

During her career, Regan has gone from the classroom to the statehouse, and from law to philanthropy, in her relentless pursuit of economic and educational equity. Before coming to the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation, she practiced law with Mitchell, Williams, Selig, Gates & Woodyard P.L.L.C. She also applied her experience in the classroom as an ESL math educator with Teach For America to advocate for better educational policies at the Texas legislature.

Regan is active in a number of philanthropic and community organizations. Currently, Regan serves as the board chair for Southeastern Council of Foundations and the treasurer for Asset Funders Network. Regan is on the steering committee for Workforce Matters, Arkansas Impact Philanthropy, and Arkansas Asset Funders Network. In recent years, she has served as a board member of Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy, Single Parent Scholarship Fund of Pulaski County, and Arkansas Association of Women Lawyers.

She earned her BA from Wellesley College, her MA in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Texas at Austin, and her JD from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Bowen School of Law.

Fueled by passion, and more than a little coffee, Regan personifies action. Whether its relentlessly pursuing equity, chasing her two small kids, or running another half marathon, you aren’t likely to find her sitting—unless she’s leading you through a yoga practice.


“It is when we get uncomfortable, working at the intersections of issues, that real change happens.”
