Wendy Prager (C89, PAR18)
Wendy is the Executive Director of the one2one USA Foundation.
She is also the Managing Partner and Counsel at Bridge Mountain
Partners where she does legal and non-profit consulting.
Previously, Wendy worked at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton in
NYC as counsel in the Private Equity Group until 2014. Before that,
she was Senior Counsel at ING Investment Management Co. for 14
years until 2010. Wendy also worked at Seward & Kissel as
an attorney in their Private Investment Funds group. She graduated
from the University of Pennsylvania and received her JD from
Fordham University School of Law. Wendy is passionate
about many causes and devotes her time
to several non-profit organizations, providing pro bono legal assistance, acting as a mentor, or in a board capacity, and is also active with several alumni organizations of the University of Pennsylvania.
After transitioning out of her long career as a hedge fund and PE lawyer, Wendy joined one2one USA after bumping into an old Penn friend at Engaging Minds. His idea about personalizing philanthropy and making it more transparent and connective for donor and donee really resonated with Wendy. Through extensive tax planning and meetings with the IRS, one2one was able to do something unprecedented in the realm of charitable giving.
Wendy lives in New Jersey with her husband, Brett (W88, EAS88) three daughters, and two rescue labs, Maui & Kona.
