Sheila Leddy is the Executive Director of the Fledgling Fund, a small private foundation driven by the belief that powerful visual stories can spur action around issues that affect the most vulnerable. Through its grant programs, labs and special initiatives, it explores, supports, and deepens the role of documentary film and other forms of visual storytelling in larger social change efforts.
Sheila has worked with the fund since its founding, where she’s been integral to the development of the organization’s overall strategy, collaborating with President and Founder Diana Barrett and the board of directors. She continues to play a leadership role shaping Fledgling’s strategy, operations, grantmaking and other initiatives. In addition to her work with Fledgling, she serves on the executive board of the Milton Foundation for Education and lives just outside of Boston with her husband and three children.
