Dear Partners and Friends of City Fund,

After more than fifteen years dedicated to improving educational opportunities for students, Neerav Kingsland will transition from his role as Managing Partner of the City Fund to a seat on the Board while pursuing the next step in his professional career outside of education. 

We’re incredibly grateful to Neerav for his founding vision and tireless effort in growing the City Fund to where it is today. Hundreds of thousands of students have been touched by his work and the impact will be felt for generations.  

We’re thrilled to announce that Marlon Marshall will be the new CEO of City Fund. Marlon joined the organization two years ago after two decades in national politics pursuing policies to improve the lives of the families we serve. The son of a public school teacher in St. Louis, Marlon brings first hand experience with the challenges and opportunities in our urban public school systems. He is a fierce advocate for creating more great schools for the kids and families who need them most. 

Marlon is well positioned to lead City Fund in the next stage of its work. As schools struggle to recover from the devastating impact of the pandemic and the associated learning loss, City Fund is doubling down on its strategy of helping cities create a system of quality schools that meet the diverse needs of all students. City Fund has never been better positioned to execute on this mission. 

We appreciate the support and partnership with you and your organizations. Together, we will commence the next stage of this work to provide better educational outcomes for all children.

The City Fund Board of Directors

John Arnold, Romy Drucker, Reed Hastings, Elisa Villanueva Beard
