Lila Ingram, Founder of Connecther.org

Creating Peace, Prosperity and Goodness in the world – that is why Lila Igram started Connecther.org, a 501c3 nonprofit that matches donors with projects that are providing services to women and children in their quest for self-reliance.  Lila put together a bootstrapping, volunteer team that together donated over $50K of in-kind services to launch the Connecther web platform.

Lila has always gravitated toward social entrepreneurship and activism.  Lila recently worked for FLOW, a nonprofit that advocates Conscious Capitalism (CC) and Peace Through Commerce (PTC).  During Lila’s time at FLOW, she worked in the area of community outreach.

Lila was born and grew up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and graduated from the University of Iowa.  She has traveled extensively in the Middle East, South America, Africa and Europe - living in Cairo, Egypt for one year.  She currently lives in Austin, TX with her husband and three kids.  Her oldest son was recently recruited to play football at Harvard and reported to Cambridge in the fall of 2010.
