Marjorie Harris: Co-Founder of Harris Philanthropies

Marjorie Harris is the Chair of the Sixers Youth Foundation, transitioning from Board membership to Chair in 2020. Passionate about creating opportunities for youth in Philadelphia, Marjorie is thrilled to broaden the organization’s mission and aid to its future success in her capacity as Chair. Marjorie also serves on a number of boards, including the Board of Trustees of Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School, the Board of Dean Advisors of The Harvard Business School and the National Board of Directors of After-School All-Stars. She is also a member of AIPAC’s Women’s Executive Council and member of The Whitney Museum of American Art, Painting & Art Sculpture Acquisition Committee.

Marjorie co-founded Harris Philanthropies with her husband, Josh, a charitable foundation with a primary goal of improving the lives of underserved youth in high-need communities through the power of sports and education. The foundation has made a transformational contribution to several communities through its work with the Police Athletic League of Philadelphia, After-School All-Stars and the Philadelphia Youth Sports Collaborative, among other charitable organizations that help children with academic achievement and enhanced wellness. Prior to taking time off to raise her five children, Marjorie spent 10 years at Citibank trading syndicated bank loans, originating high yield bonds and lending to investment grade companies.

Marjorie graduated from the University of Michigan with a B.A. in Political Science. She currently resides in New York City with Josh and their five children.
