Board of Directors
Tracey Morrell, Chair
A Co-Founder of GoPhilanthropic Foundation, Tracey was integral in bringing the vision of GoPhil’s vision to life. After a decade of building the organization as a volunteer, she
stepped away in early 2020 to spend more time with her family. During that period, Tracey and her husband, Jeff, launched two of their three youngest children in college. She also became a master reiki, began volunteering with a local not-for-profit and continued her love of travel. Tracey holds a Physics degree from Imperial College and spent a decade in the telecoms industry before moving into not-for-profit work. After realizing how much she missed GoPhil, Tracey returned to the organization’s Board Chair in January 2022. This role of oversight and governance is, as Tracey says, “the perfect role at this time, allowing me to stay connected to the partners and community I
missed so much.”
