Tina Ramirez Moon
Tina Ramirez Moon (she/they) is a Program Officer with the Healthy Communities Foundation, a community-informed grantmaking foundation that seeks to measurably improve the health and well-being of individuals, families and communities through health equity, quality and access.
She recognizes that individual health reflects community and organizational health (and vice versa), which has been a common thread woven across a variety of roles. Tina brings to HCF extensive experience in community engagement, federal grant oversight, program implementation and workshop facilitation, informed by more than fifteen years in the nonprofit sector and cultural organizing work. Grounded in kapwa practice and values rooted in interconnection and interdependence, she seeks to understand how we collectively center relationships, well-being and resilience in organizational and community spaces.
Tina serves on the board for the Alliance of Filipinos for Immigrant Rights and Empowerment (AFIRE Chicago) and is active with Chicago Women in Philanthropy’s Women’s Leadership and Mentorship Program. She received an M.A. from the University of Chicago’s School of Social Service Administration and a B.A. in literary studies and creative writing from Beloit College.
As the daughter of Colombian and Filipinx immigrants in diaspora, she gives daily gratitude for past and future ancestors and honors her work as a bridge to collective healing, wholeness and joy.
