Alison Moore is a media and tech industry veteran who is bridging the worlds of entertainment, social change, storytelling, and fundraising to break the cycles that perpetuate intergenerational poverty.
Alison joined Comic Relief US in 2019 to build upon the organization’s ambitious mission to drive positive change through entertainment. Under Alison’s leadership, Comic Relief US is leveraging its unique blend of humor and entertainment to address complex and entrenched social and economic issues. Not content to let philanthropy tinker around the edges, Comic Relief US is working to use its power and influence across industries to invest in innovative problem solvers that can spark real and lasting change. This work includes the new Innovation and Growth Fund, a $10 million funding pipeline to combine purpose, brand, and entertainment content to rapidly incubate and scale new ideas to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty.
Under Alison’s leadership, Comic Relief US is creating new content campaigns and launching innovative social impact-led funds, providing more platforms for brands, organizations and communities to make a greater impact together. Since 2015, Comic Relief US has partnered closely with Walgreens, NBC, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation on its year-round Red Nose Day campaign to end child poverty. In the past 7 years we have raised over $380 million and positively impacted over 30 million children in the U.S. and around the world. Now, Alison and the Comic Relief US team are reimagining the traditional fundraising model, reaching next gen audiences on emerging platforms, while utilizing new content and storytelling strategies to encourage individual participation and action.
