Colm Ó Riain moved on from Rethink Charity’s board of directors in November 2022 after over three years of service, having joined as part of our board expansion in 2019. Colm also served on the board’s fundraising subcommittee.
Rethink Charity benefited from Colm’s wide-ranging experience in philanthropic strategy and recruitment, as well as his substantial knowledge of the effective altruism community. Colm offered valuable, perceptive ideas and advice across all of Rethink Charity’s projects, and on organization-wide fundraising initiatives.
As much as we will miss having him as a board member, we are happy to free up his bandwidth for his varied professional and personal goals. Not only does Colm work to support growth at Machine Intelligence Research Institute, he’s also an accomplished violinist and composer.
Colm’s contributions to Rethink Charity these last three years are deeply appreciated and we wish him all the best!
