Eric Horvath

Director of Capital Strategies

About Eric

Eric envisions a world where capital, whether it be human or financial, is one of many drivers of social justice. Through previous work alongside refugees, adoptees, and other historically disenfranchised communities, he has seen time and again that our path ahead must be paved with listening, better representation, and amplification of community expertise.

Before joining Common Future, Eric worked at Transform Finance, where he launched several initiatives that collaborated with activists, organizers and other social sector allies across the country to explore paths for their communities to harness and reclaim capital. He has also worked in philanthropy, where he supported the Woodcock Foundation’s grantmaking and impact investing efforts. Through his time at the foundation, he helped steward several millions of dollars in grants and program-related investments.

Outside of work, he is deeply engaged in local politics, mentoring youth, and growing a grassroots scholarship fund at his alma mater. A former Fulbright ETA, Eric earned his MPA from the Maxwell School at Syracuse University and is currently pursuing an MBA from the Stern School of Business at NYU. He calls Brooklyn home.
