As vice president of Civic Engagement, Marcus guides the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s community engagement efforts and helps the Foundation bring people together who don’t often see eye to eye to find common ground and achieve consensus on some of the most urgent community issues. White joined the Foundation in 2008. He previously spent seven years as executive director of the Interfaith Conference of Greater Milwaukee, a nonprofit composed of 13 different religious denominations that addresses various social issues affecting the greater Milwaukee area. Under his leadership, Interfaith helped lead efforts addressing affordable housing, poverty, hunger and racial justice. Marcus began his career working with anti-apartheid organizations in South Africa beginning in the late 1980s. He graduated from Wabash College and earned a master’s degree in urban studies from University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
