Lindy Eichenbaum Lent, ’97, is the president and CEO of Rose Community Foundation, a Colorado place-based funder advancing inclusive, engaged and equitable Greater Denver communities through strategic grantmaking, policy and advocacy, mission-aligned investing, donor engagement and values-driven philanthropy.  After graduating Stanford with a BA in political science and earning a master’s degree from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, Lindy served as communications director to U.S. Representative Lloyd Doggett (TX) and then-Denver Mayor (now U.S. Senator) John Hickenlooper, the latter role included managing the City of Denver’s communications and media relations as host of the 2008 Democratic National Convention.  Lindy subsequently led an urban placemaking nonprofit, the Civic Center Conservancy, building public-private partnerships to revitalize downtown Denver’s Civic Center Park, a National Historic Landmark between the Colorado State Capitol and Denver’s City Hall, through programming, advocacy, capital improvements and fundraising.  A veteran of mayoral and gubernatorial transition committees and task forces and a current member of the EDUCATE Denver coalition of civic and business leaders aiming to hold Denver Public Schools’ leadership accountable for student outcomes, she served 10 years on the recently sunset Lowry Redevelopment Authority board of directors which oversaw the mixed-use infill redevelopment of Denver’s decommissioned Lowry Air Force Base.  Lindy is a member of the Stanford Associates and remains an engaged Stanford in Government alum.
