Leslie Baker is Executive Director of the Baker Family Charitable Trust (BFCT). A former marketer, project manager and event planner, Leslie shifted gears away from the corporate sphere to focus her skills and energy full-time on philanthropy and giving back to the Bay Area and Sonoma communities. BFCT supports nonprofit organizations throughout the Bay Area as well as animal welfare groups in Missouri, Colorado and Chicago. She and her husband also own and manage Baker Vineyards LLC which grows and sells organically farmed Rhone varietal grapes and olives in the Sonoma Valley AVA.

A lifelong animal lover, Leslie grew up in central Missouri and lived in Chicago, Germany and Los Angeles before declaring the Bay Area home.

Leslie, her husband, daughter and two cats—Sophie and Bella—split their time between Noe Valley in San Francisco and Sonoma.
