Everett Graves-Swinney

Ambassador Leadership Program Associate

Everett is the Ambassador Leadership Program Associate at the Davis Phinney Foundation. After growing up in Kansas City and graduating from the University of Missouri with degrees in Anthropology and English, Everett moved to the state with 300 days of sunshine to explore the mountains and the nonprofit world. He has four years of experience in volunteer management and is known to be capable of making friends with brick walls. When not talking people’s ears off about his favorite losing baseball team (Go Royals!), the most recent book he finished, or his latest dispersed camping spot, he’s hanging out with his partner and their dog and cat, Fae and Fern. During the high school speech and debate season, his pets forget what he looks like as he spends most of his free time coaching a team of 20 students.
