Loren Pogir helps organizations build sustainable solutions to transform end of life care. She is currently helping a foundation develop effective grantmaking strategies, scale a caregiver training program, find a sustainability path for residential hospice houses and start a new organization aimed at engaging the community around end-of-life issues.
Previously, Loren was a member of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation’s leadership team and led the Patient Care Program, a $40 million annual grantmaking program. While at the Foundation, Loren launched a consortium of academic medical centers to eliminate preventable harms and unnecessary costs in the intensive care unit. The work to date has led to the reduction of preventable harms by 26%, improved patient satisfaction by 40% and has been covered by major news outlets including the New York Times and Wall Street Journal. Loren also developed a funding strategy to improve end-of-life care.
Prior to working at the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, Loren held leadership roles in Strategy, Operations, Finance and Consulting functions with BlackRock, Charles Schwab, Barclays Global Investors and Ernst & Young. Loren has also consulted to non-profits in areas of aging including Experience Corp, Jewish Family Children’s Services Older Adult Services and Chaparral House Nursing Home.
Loren is thrilled to merge her passion for improving elder and end-of-life care with her background in finance, strategy and operations to implement sustainable solutions for end of life care through her new consultancy, Pogir Strategic Advisors.
