Director of Institutional Giving

As Director of Institutional Giving for Southern California Public Radio, Stefan Romberg is responsible for building relationships with local, regional, and national institutions that support the work of SCPR. He provides strategic oversight and leadership to the Institutional Giving team’s efforts to secure and steward grants.

Stefan joined SCPR in 2014 with ten years of fundraising experience at public policy organizations in Washington, DC. Most recently he rose through the ranks at the Center for American Progress (CAP), a major progressive policy think tank, ultimately serving as the Director of Foundation Relations. Stefan also held roles as the development manager at TrueChild, a national organization focused on the issue of gender stereotyping, as well as a grant writer at the National PTA, a well-known, historic membership association for parents and educators.

A graduate of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Stefan has a degree in Philosophy. In 2014 he and his husband, John, relocated from Washington, DC to Downtown LA, where he has cultivated a green thumb with more than a little help from The Original Los Angeles Flower Market.
