Alexei Safronov finds his work in the philanthropic industry to be both fulfilling and rewarding as it allows him to make a difference in people’s lives and partner with dedicated individuals to pursue a greater good that extends beyond himself. He feels that through the power of philanthropy, nonprofit organizations have the capacity to influence long-lasting social change, impacting lives for generations to come.
Alexei’s role at BWF aligns with a common truth among nonprofits—to maximize success, partnerships must not only exist, they must be strong and reliable. As director of partnerships and alliances, Alexei is responsible for the development and implementation of partnerships aligned with the firm’s strategic business goals as well as maintaining and expanding current partnerships. When people come together to help others, whether donating money and time or providing services, we can help communities grow stronger.

When he’s not building partnerships, Alexei enjoys spending time with his family, following his passions for sports and animals, expanding his knowledge of technology, reading, staying up to date on the financial markets, and traveling.
