Founder, Everychild Foundation

Jacqueline Jacobs Caster earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from Pomona College, her Masters in City and Regional Planning from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University and her J.D. from Boston University School of Law. Jacqueline practiced real estate law with Loeb and Loeb in Los Angeles in the mid-80s and left the field of law for a career in urban redevelopment.  After several years with Disney Development Company, she headed her own consulting firm for over a decade performing economic feasibility studies for large-scale urban renovation and cultural projects. Her client list included numerous Fortune 500 companies, municipalities and cultural institutions.

She founded the Everychild Foundation in 1999.  This organization, which she has headed since its formation, is comprised of over 200 Los Angeles women. In lieu of fundraising events, members each donate $5,000 in dues annually. The dollars are pooled, and the organization makes a single $1 million grant in the community each year for an innovative project serving a critical unmet need of children which can inspire replication, thereby leveraging the donations. In just 12 years, the organization has made grants totaling over $9.5 million.  Everychild’s model of efficient giving has spurred the creation of at least ten other new foundations - two as far away as London - and the group is rapidly becoming a catalyst for change in the nonprofit world. It has provided a new format for busy women to give back in a meaningful way, utilizing their brains, talents and professional skills without a large time commitment. Additionally, the organization has ventured into legislative advocacy for children’s issues, in particular youth aging out of foster care, incarcerated minors, homeless youth and investment in children aged zero to five. 


President and CEO, Women’s Foundation of California

Judy Patrick is President and CEO of the Women’s Foundation of California. Prior to her appointment in 2008, Judy held the post of Executive Vice President of Programs for nine years. In that role, Judy led the Foundation’s advocacy and policy change work, including the development of the groundbreaking Women’s Policy Institute. She also worked to develop programs to strengthen grant partners’ organizational capacity and to evaluate the impact of their work.

Prior to coming to the Foundation, Judy directed the work of several nonprofits. She was executive director of the San Francisco-based Women’s Philharmonic and director of Girls Count, a Colorado initiative to change systems that impact girls’ educational achievement and career planning. She also led Mi Casa Resource Center for Women, a Denver organization that advances self-sufficiency primarily for low-income Latinas and youth.

She has served on the faculty of the University of Colorado at Denver and Regis University, where she taught program development and evaluation. Judy has worked as a researcher and program evaluator in both the public and private sectors. She serves on numerous boards of directors.


CEO, Sylvia Global
Member, Women Moving Millions

Gael Sylvia Pullen is a pioneering businesswoman, prolific speaker, and ardent philanthropist. Her life’s goal is to empower and inspire all to see the good that is around us.  Acting out of her core values, she recently founded Sylvia Global Media, a  global broadcasting digital platform, that serves as a sphere of influence for women and girls around the world.  Channeling quality, trustworthy content, Sylvia Global is a referral source of AMAZING women and enlightened men.  

Her passion meets purpose as the leading proponent of the “Global Call To Action for Women and Girls’ Health – The First Ladies Campaign” as the founder of Girls Fly!; former owner of Ghail Media Group – the largest Spanish-radio broadcast in northeastern Ohio; Charis Real Estate – the largest minority-owned (revenue generated) commercial real estate brokerage firm in southern California during the mid-80’s; and as a recently retired award-winning McDonald’s franchisee.

“I have always wanted to created a place of influence that would amplify the diverse voices of women and girls, the incredible work being done by image activists globally, by women’s funding networks from donors to grantees. Re-imaging what is commonly associated with wealth, the word philanthropist and revealing alternative models of what success truly is, Sylvia Global is the connective tissue for all the good perpetuated in our lives at every level.  From the least expected places to a refreshing perspective from the most familiar, here is an opportunity to hear and see added dimension to what women’s work truly is.”

“I see women's and girl’s health and philanthropy as inexorably linked. To create healthy women and girls, we need to reimagine the word philanthropy. It is often assumed that the recipient of philanthropy is only capable of being on the receiving end. But there’s this other side to women and girls – the Women Moving Millions side. We are capable of being incredible change agents.”
