John McKinnon joined the AEGN board in 2013.  As well as running his family foundation, John sits on a number of other non-profit and social enterprise boards utilising his experience in both the finance and international development fields. From 2005 – 2012 John worked in international development for TEAR Australia.

During this time he completed his doctorate in development and social enterprise.  John joined the AEGN board in 2013. He is a strong believer in collaboration and mutual learning among environmental grant givers and hopes to assist AEGN as it continues to help members be more effective in their giving. John’s particular interest is impact investing and he is keen to see more members using their investment corpuses to achieve environmental outcomes in addition to those achieved through granting.
