Board Chair of the Wyncote Foundation, Leonard Haas serves with his brothers David, Frederick and Duncan, who are also directors of the foundation. They carry on the legacy started by their father, John C. Haas, while expanding the foundation’s impact in the greater Philadelphia area and in the Pacific Northwest via Wyncote Foundation Northwest by providing grants in arts and culture, education, the environment, health and human services, preservation, public media and journalism. The Foundation has received the Philadelphia Orchestra Award for increasing engagement with patrons, allowing the dramatic transformation of the orchestra itself and for “unparalleled leadership in Philadelphia’s philanthropic community.” Leonard’s passion for theater parallels his desire to improve the lives of Philadelphians while contributing to the greater good.
