Ryan Heckman is has a passion for justice, leadership of those most impacted by injustice and wealth redistribution. This was inspired during his time working at ReconcilingWorks where he worked for LGBTQ inclusion in Lutheran churches across the United States.  Ryan is thrilled to be a part of Headwaters working with the Headwaters community seeing deep generosity and commitment at all levels of giving. Ryan hopes to inspire the Headwaters community to meaningfully and boldy resource grant making in Minnesota. Ryan holds a Bachelor of Arts in Music and a Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies from the University of Minnesota. He is currently pursuing a Master of Nonprofit Management at Hamline University. He serves on the Minnesota Council of Nonprofit's working group for the future of donor advised funds and serves on the board of directors for Shobi's Table, a local Lutheran food ministry based in the Saint Paul Area Synod of the ELCA. For fun, you'll find Ryan reading many novels at once, or cooking with his husband and his two kittens. You can give Ryan a call if you want to organize and mobilze your networks to resource movements in Minnesota. He'll be happy you called!
