OVERVIEW: Greg Poole and his wife Anupama Poole move their philanthropy through the Echo Street Foundation. 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. He 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 sits on the board. They've 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."
OTHER: Poole and Anupama have supported Innocence Project and Asian American Women's Alliance (AAWA).
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.
