OVERVIEW: Greg Poole and his wife Anupama Poole conduct their philanthropy through the Echo Street Foundation. Their giving focuses on educational opportunities for youth and global organizations, particularly those that work in India.
BACKGROUND: Greg Brian Poole was a portfolio manager at Goldman Sachs and later founded Echo Street Capital Management. Poole keeps a low profile
EDUCATION & YOUTH: The couple is heavily involved with Allen-Stevenson School in Manhattan, where Anupama serves on the board. They have also supported Comfort Zone Camp, "the nation's largest bereavement camp."
GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT: The couple has supported Ekal Vidyalaya Foundation, a "non-profit organization involved in education and village development in rural areas and tribal villages of India," and Hearts of the Father Outreach, which provides "support and homes of refuge for orphaned and abandoned children in Ghana, Uganda and India."
LOOKING FORWARD: The couple's recent giving has stuck to a handful of organizations. Anupama is a prosthodontist, so perhaps health will emerge as a giving interest in the future.
