Avila Kilmurray, now a consultant for the Social Change Initiative, spent years running the Community Foundation for Northern Ireland. She was instrumental in positioning the Foundation to help rebuild communities during, and after, the Troubles. Her work showed the capacity of small amounts of money to empower communities and their changemakers. While working in perhaps the most difficult environment on the planet at the time, she created more change than most of us could imagine. Her perspective and expertise are valuable to anyone interested in building community.
