Lissie Garvin is the Program Director for the 776 Foundation and Fellowship Program. The Foundation was started in March 2022 by Seven Seven Six (“776”) and Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian with a mission to fund problem-solvers combatting inequity worldwide. Its first commitment is $20M toward climate change issues through the new 776 Fellowship Program - a two-year program for young people who want to build a better future. Garvin most recently served as Seven Seven Six’s Founding Chief of Staff working directly with Ohanian, where she managed the firm’s external and internal communications practices, social media strategy and founder relations as a trusted advisor. Prior to 776, Lissie served as Chief of Staff to Ohanian at both Reddit and Initialized Capital. Garvin resides in Austin, TX.
