Ciciley (CC) Moore is invested in democratizing philanthropy and changing the narrative of who is seen and celebrated as a philanthropist. As the Program Officer for the Office of the President at the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, she provides leadership for strategic investments that address systemic barriers and create conditions for historically excluded communities, families, and children to thrive. Her work includes support of participatory collaboratives to increase locally-driven philanthropy by and for communities of color and embedding racial equity in philanthropy. Previously, she worked with BIPOC – LGBTQ communities to develop places of belonging and remediate structures that propagate racial and other group-based inequality.
As a Black Latina, Ciciley serves on the board of the Latina Network of West Michigan and is co-founder of Black Women Connect GR. Both collectives are designed to lift Latina & Black women leadership by serving as a catalyst for systemic change through leadership development, cultural belonging, and reclaiming narrative.
Ciciley holds a Master of Business Administration from Michigan State University and a Bachelor of Science degree from California State University, Sacramento. Originally from Salinas, California she currently resides in Grand Rapids, Michigan with her husband and three children and actively serves in local and national philanthropic council positions to advance racial justice.
