Philanthropy & Nonprofits

ERIC EIKENBERG

CEO, EVERGLADES FOUNDATION, PALMETTO BAY

One of the state’s most influential environmental organizations, the Everglades Foundation supports scientific research, education and advocacy related to the Everglades ecosystem. A group of outdoor enthusiasts founded the non-profit in 1993 after an algae bloom in Florida Bay. Eikenberg spent eight years in Washington as chief of staff for U.S. Rep. Clay Shaw before returning to Florida to become chief of staff for Gov. Charlie Crist. He has led the foundation since 2012.

EDUCATION American University (BS)
CIVIC IMPACT Because of the work we began with the ‘Now Or Neverglades’ bus tour in 2016, folks now appreciate the direct line between clean water and Florida’s economy.
SOMETHING SURPRISING I love American history, especially the history of the presidency.
