Bella Berns first joined the Lumos USA Board of Directors in 2015 and is currently serving another term after an organizational restructuring. She is a Director at LCV Advisors working with clients on their social investment and philanthropy portfolios.

Prior to this, she was Head of Philanthropy for Credit Suisse in Europe, Middle East and Africa, where she designed and launched the philanthropy services offering for their global private banking clients while also restructuring their corporate philanthropy and employee engagement programs in EMEA.

“Lumos is one of the most efficient, effective organizations I have had the honor of working with. On a relatively small budget, Lumos is changing policy; redirecting governmental funding; improving family support systems; and, most importantly, changing both the immediate and long-term lives of our collective community of children. Lumos is on track to end institutionalization globally - a bold, yet important endeavor.”
