LAURA ARRILLAGA-ANDREESSEN, Founder
Laura committed to living a life of service at age 25—just prior to her late mother’s passing. Blessed to be the daughter of two extraordinary philanthropists, John Arrillaga Sr. and the late Frances Arrillaga, Laura strives to continue her family’s philanthropic legacy in all that she does. Laura is the visionary and leader of LAAF, and she drives its core innovations and decision-making around how to best leverage her knowledge and expertise to positively impact the giving of others. Laura believes that the strongest leaders surround themselves with individuals who have talents, skills and expertise that far surpasses her own. Her team is made up of a spectacular array of former star students from her Stanford University courses—each of whom brings immense wisdom, incomparable value and radiant joy to her every day.
