Inspired Heart Foundation Co-Founder and President
Connie Viveros is Co-Founder of The Inspired Heart Foundation and currently serves as its President. Connie brings to the Foundation more than a decade of non-profit leadership experience across numerous charitable causes – all of them working for social justice.
Prior to joining IHF, Connie’s non-profit leadership career included roles as:
Managing Director of The Unstoppable Foundation, a leading humanitarian organization that fights global poverty by providing lifesaving assistance to over 50,000 individuals in rural Africa. President of The Collective Heart Foundation, providing a leadership platform from which hundreds of girls now have the opportunity to become business and government leaders. Co-Founder and President of the 100 Women Charitable Foundation where she led the organizations’ efforts to design and create and implement a system of collective philanthropy in the San Francisco Bay Area which has contributed more than a $1 million dollars to deserving non-profit organizations in Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties.
Connie is a longtime advocate for women’s rights and social-change philanthropy, and leads with vulnerability and passion for empowering underserved women around our world. She has spent the past decade creating opportunities and support programs for others in need, especially women and children living in abject poverty.
Connie’s interest in working for underserved women dates back nearly a decade to a humanitarian trip she made to rural East Africa. Visiting dozens of communities in both Kenya and Uganda, she was struck by the lack of educational opportunities and infrastructure for children, especially girls. Returning home more aware of the issue, she saw a similar pattern of opportunity gaps in her own community in the San Francisco Bay Area. She made it her life’s mission to give to organizations that provide education, mentorship, support programs and opportunities for underserved women.
Connie‘s personal passion is connecting with women who also believe they can and must make a difference in this world – starting with themselves. She is dedicated to creating inspiring content and programs that empower all women to transform self-doubt into self-love. She is a formally trained and Certified expert transformational life coach. Connie is an inspiring public speaker on transformation and she is the published co-author of two books on the subject. An ordained minister, she has served as mentor, friend and inspiration to girls everywhere from her neighborhood all the way to the Masai Mara in East Africa.
