Alisa Del Tufo

Threshold Collaborative
Founder, CEO
My career has been dedicated to making impact at the nexus of practice and policy; individual and community change; intellectual pursuit and activism in pursuit of ending violence in the lives of women and girls and other deep social challenges. Raising over 80 million dollars, I have founded three game changing organizations: Sanctuary for Families, CONNECT and Threshold Collaborative, www.thresholdcollaborative.org. Threshold’s work uses an array of participatory strategies and story gathering to ignite empathy, inclusion, insight and impact, continuing this tradition of innovation.My policy and legislative efforts have resulted in federal, state and local reforms including the establishment of a 3 million dollar fund for housing support for women survivors of violence and children, changes in criminal justice, child welfare and health reform. In recognition of my creativity and innovations I have been awarded the Charles Revson Fellowship for the Future on NYC (1988/89), a Rockefeller Fellowship (1998) and, in 2007 was elected, for a lifetime, into the Ashoka Fellowship, a global network of leading social entrepreneurs. I am the author or two books on domestic violence and child abuse and multiple articles, the recipient of Union Theological Seminary’s prestigious Distinguished Alumna Award and in 2008, Colgate University’s Humanitarian Award. I am the founder and CEO of Threshold Collaborative and currently teach at the Marlboro Graduate School of Management and Sustainable Practice. In addition I consult with individuals and organizations using appreciative strategies to build positive change.
