The evolution of the Fund for Public Health with Sara Gardner
Sara Gardner is heading into her 15th year as the executive director at the Fund for Public Health, and it is no surprise that she has such longevity. Prior to being ED at FPHNYC, she was at EngenderHealth for two decades working to advance sexual and reproductive rights and gender equality. That made her no stranger to crisis response, leading FPHNYC since 2008 through a recession at the time and later through COVID-19.
Gardner has worked with six Department of Health and Mental Hygiene commissioners during her tenure and used the FPHNYC’s unique model of public-private partnership to mobilize the philanthropic community and support the DOHMH’s endeavors. That included Hurricane Sandy and the ongoing opioid and substance misuse crisis. Her expertise on the evolution of FPHNYC throughout the years, the ever changing relationships between the public-private sector and the challenge of advancing public interest while balancing the evolving priorities set by new mayors and their administrations is knowledge that sets Gardner apart from many ED’s.
She was also included in City & State’s Responsible 100 last year.
