NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, September 18, 2023/ -- Libra Philanthropies is excited to announce its official launch as an independent 501(c)(3) foundation dedicated to shaping the future of individuals, communities, and generations to come for the better. Libra Philanthropies is built on Libra Group’s decade-long social responsibility legacy of supporting over 25 million people and 281 organizations in 182 countries around the world through Libra Social Responsibility. The Foundation is committed to creating, supporting, and scaling social impact initiatives through the exponential power of a global network, creative hands-on programs, and strategic giving.

The Foundation is a collective of 10 philanthropic initiatives that include social impact programs and independent non-profits that the Libra ecosystem has incubated. These initiatives focus on mental health, leadership and empowerment, entrepreneurship, addressing global issues through public private partnerships, and providing opportunity to high-potential individuals and communities worldwide.

By empowering individuals, creating initiatives that address seen and unseen barriers, and providing vehicles of progress across our global platform, Libra Philanthropies is creating a self-perpetuating cascade of good.”

The foundation will be led by Rosanna Mortoglou, who comes to Libra Philanthropies with extensive experience within Libra Group. Starting as an intern and quickly advancing through the ecosystem, she most recently served as Libra Group’s Chief Representative in Greece, leading strategic operations and business development in the region. Her background includes collaborating with leaders across various sectors and functions, providing her with a comprehensive understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing our global community.

Logothetis continued, “I am very proud that Rosanna, a passionate leader and veteran of our Group, will take the helm as the organization’s first-ever CEO. Under Rosanna’s stewardship and with the continued work of the dedicated Libra Philanthropies team, I’m confident that we
can be catalysts of change for individuals, communities, and future generations.”

“It is a privilege to empower people dedicated to meaningful change,” says Mortoglou. “We are determined to advance the work of Libra’s last decade into a global organization that uplifts leaders of tomorrow, amplifies the impact of organizations within our ecosystem, and changes lives.”
