Holly Bartling

Director, Worker Justice and Dignity Fund


Holly is the Director of the Worker Justice and Dignity Fund, a fund that invests in organizations and leaders working to end worker exploitation, bring about structural change, and create conditions for everyone to live and work in dignity. Holly is the first woman in her family to attend college, and she is passionate about paying back that investment by mobilizing resources for leaders and movements to bring about a more just world.

Previously, Holly was the Senior Program Officer at the General Service Foundation where she managed the Building Voice and Power program, a movement building portfolio that supported organizations working at the intersection of racial, gender and economic justice. She also directed GSF investments in leadership development and healing justice. Prior to GSF, Holly spent nearly a decade directing training initiatives for social justice leaders; first with Central American activists through the Washington Office on Latin America, and later with social justice and human rights activists in a four-month sabbatical program at Columbia University. She has served on the boards of Funders for Reproductive Equity (FRE) and the Partnership Funds, and on the Steering Committee for the Amplify Fund. She holds a Master’s Degree in Human Rights and Economic Development from Columbia University and a Bachelor’s Degree in International Relations from Stanford University. Holly and her family love living in the San Francisco Bay Area and hightail it to the beach any chance they get.
