Scott McDonald

Chief External Affairs Officer

As Chief External Affairs Officer, I work with external partners to match Root Capital’s mission with their own impact objectives. Together, my team ensures our global colleagues have the resources they need to transform rural communities. This work requires creative thinking and cross-cutting collaboration to engage philanthropists, impact investors, and others that are ready to have an impact. I’m grateful that I get to bring my decades of experience working in resource mobilization for a number of mission-driven organizations focused on economic development, anti-poverty, global health, climate, and humanitarian action to build on Root Capital’s proven impact in rural communities.
