As retired Director of Initiatives and Partnerships with Kronkosky Charitable Foundation, Ingrid Petty worked closely with community leaders, social assistance and human services officials, nonprofit agencies, and funders to determine the greatest needs for which the Foundation could make a profound difference in the region it serves.
A strong proponent of collaboration, Ingrid’s work with community helped inspire successful collective action and create customized systems change. Those initiatives have served as a key element of Kronkosky Charitable Foundation’s current leadership in effective cross-sector collaboration efforts in Bexar County and beyond.
Ingrid recently authored The Kronkosky Foundation Story: Creating Profound Good through Community Philanthropy, a 25-year history of the Foundation, published by Trinity University Press and Maverick Books.
Before joining the philanthropic world, Ingrid spent most of her career in administrative capacities in the legal field, including ten years with the Honorary Consul of Canada in San Antonio. She is a graduate of the Leadership Texas and Leadership America programs of Leadership Women.
Ingrid has served on the board of directors for Stop Trafficking US, a Maine-based nonprofit focused on education and prevention efforts addressing the trafficking and sexual exploitation of minor children. She is also a member of the board of The MaripoSA Difference, Inc., a local 501(c)(3) serving as a fundraising grantor to the network of San Antonio’s nonprofit organizations serving those at-risk of or affected by human trafficking.
