Eugene Sepulveda

Entrepreneurs Foundation
Eugene Sepulveda believes children can make an impact in charity and every single adult even more. Last year, through the Entrepreneurs Foundation over 8,600 Austin children ran lemonade stands, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for themselves and their favorite charities, while learning about entrepreneurship. The Entrepreneurs Foundation practices disruptive innovation in philanthropy, helps make nonprofits profitable and promotes entrepreneurship. Every year, he and his staff at the Entrepreneurs Foundation help hundreds of employees and entrepreneurs identify the intersection of their skills, their passions and community needs to best channel their charitable involvement. As a business professor at the University of Texas teaching social entrepreneurship & international business, Eugene’s undergraduate and MBA students provided tens of thousands of consulting hours helping nonprofits better reach, define and otherwise support their missions. Eugene’s served in leadership roles on the boards of numerous foundations and nonprofits including the Austin Community Foundation, the Human Rights Campaign, the KDK-Harman Foundation, Leadership Austin, the Austin Museum of Art, PeopleFund and the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce. He’s involved with national and international charities, most recently raising over $1.5 million for Haiti earthquake relief – raising over $4mm for charity and politics the last two years. He also serves on President Obama's national finance committee and as co-chair for the LGBT Leadership Council. Eugene and his husband, Steven Tomlinson, established ABPorter.org to support art and conversations which build community.
