Jennifer Lentfer is the Director of Communications at Thousand Currents and is the creator of the blog, how-matters.org. Her 2017 book, Smart Risks: How small grants are helping to solve some of the world’s biggest problems, features the growing community of grantmakers that find and fund visionary leaders around the world. She was named one of Foreign Policy Magazine's "100 women to follow on Twitter” at @intldogooder. Lentfer works to place community-driven initiatives and grassroots movements at the forefront of international aid and philanthropy. It’s no wonder, given that her hometown of Bruning, Nebraska, USA has just 248 people.
