Principal Officer

Mr. H. Peter Karoff

BIO

H. Peter Karoff is founder and President of TPI Inc. His primary role has been in both the development of the organization and its unique client base, and the evolution of the concept and language of strategic philanthropy. As a result, he frequently speaks and writes about these ideas to the donor and philanthropic community as well as to new audiences for whom philanthropy is not a familiar subject. Peter works directly with select TPI clients on issues of policy and strategy and he is an experienced facilitator of those issues.
