Matt Grager

Climate Program Manager

Matt Grager joined WildAid in 2015 to coordinate its fight against climate change, which aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by advocating for individual behavior change. His diverse nonprofit and social justice background includes experience in communications, marketing, fundraising, and program development, an ideal fit for WildAid's broad climate change activities. 

Before joining WildAid, Matt developed and led the disaster resilience program at Give2Asia. That program continues to help communities at risk of natural disasters and climate change by supporting, training and funding local NGOs and educating international philanthropists on the subject. 

After teaching English as a foreign language in Istanbul, Turkey and Jeju, South Korea, Matt reluctantly repatriated in 2011, but his passion for exploring new places and cultures remains. He has a degree in print journalism from Chapman University and previously worked as a sports reporter for The Orange County Register. When not traveling abroad, he enjoys hiking, writing and cooking.
