 Rip Rapson Biography

Rip Rapson is an attorney, urban policy expert, and has been president and CEO of The Kresge Foundation since 2006, transforming it from a foundation that funded building projects to one that seeks to build and strengthen pathways to opportunity for people with low incomes living in America’s cities.

Previously, he was president of the McKnight Foundation in Minneapolis, where he led early-childhood development efforts, created a regional public-private-philanthropic economic-development organization, and enhanced environmental protections along the Mississippi River. Rapson earlier served as deputy mayor of Minneapolis, with responsibility for designing a $400 million neighborhood revitalization program, revamping the municipal budgeting process, and elevating the city’s commitment to children and families.
