Rebecca Eastmond


Rebecca Eastmond is Co-Founder and CEO of Greenwood Place, which she created to leverage the experience she gained over 20 years’ work in philanthropy.

Rebecca began her career as a charity lawyer at Allen & Overy, then became CEO of The Prince’s Foundation for Arts & Kids - taking it from a start-up to working with 33,000 children.  

She was a Managing Director of J.P. Morgan Private Bank, leading the bank’s philanthropy advisory offering in EMEA for almost a decade.  

Rebecca serves on the board of two grant-making foundations.

She is also a trustee of Smart Works, and a global council member for Acumen, very different organisations that share a common approach of listening hard to the people they seek to serve and giving them access to the tools they need to build their own better futures.  She was a founder trustee of the House of Illustration.

She served on the board of the UK’s Philanthropy Review and has received numerous awards for her work in philanthropy.  She read law at Oxford University and qualified as a solicitor in England and Wales.
