Alene G. Sussman

Executive Director, Minnesota Jewish Community Foundation

Alene G. Sussman is the Executive Director of the Minnesota Jewish Community Foundation (MN JCF), which helps its fund holders give through a Jewish lens and promotes the concept of tikkun olam (repairing the world). In 2021, MN JCF helped its fund holders send $14 million out to causes and organizations (both Jewish and non-Jewish) all around the world.

Alene is a former in-house attorney at the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis and prior to that practiced at the law firm of Dorsey and Whitney LLP. She graduated from Howard University School of Law and received her undergraduate degree in Political Science from Columbia University.

She volunteers for a variety of non-profit boards around the Twin Cities, including the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, in the areas of development and fundraising, and grant making.

She loves spending time with her son and husband, foodstagramming, travelling, and is a perennially disappointed Minnesota Vikings fan.
