Salley Anderson understands that intention and integrity flow from individual, to organization, to world; and that when people feel deeply connected to something, their sense of belonging positively influences their actions.
She brings to the foundation her commitment to cultivating holistic work cultures where people feel aligned with their purpose and each other, to serve the greater whole—so that ALL can thrive. By doing so, Salley supports the foundation’s mission to be a place of modeling and learning for our local and global communities.
With grounded maturity and fresh perspective, Salley is a valued thought partner to leadership and staff, bringing financial insight and operational clarity to highly dynamic and diverse environments. The most unique of those professional environments being a monastery, where 10 years ago Salley lived and served as CFO and COO, in both Australia and New York. It was there, in an organization with a strong unifying mission and few boundaries between work and home, that Salley became acutely aware of the importance of “keeping a clean house”—living, working and communicating with clarity and integrity—in support of a broader vision. Something she continues to practice in every role she’s held since.
Her accounting degree from the University of Washington and MBA from Seattle University formed the academic base on which Salley built her financial skills. It’s her calling that inspires her use of those skills to foster a more benevolent, healthy and interconnected world.
