Alvin Huntspon is a corporate governance professional who has been recognized as a rising star for driving good corporate governance and implementing change at a Fortune 5 Company.  Among his many accolades is his work in operating a successful shareholder engagement outreach program. His corporate governance team’s impressive efforts have been recognized by the New York Stock Exchange Governance, Risk & Compliance Leadership Awards, Corporate Secretary Magazine Corporate Governance Awards, Financial Times, and Bloomberg; as well as by many top institutional investors and pension funds, domestically and internationally.

Mr. Huntspon’s civic participation in the city of Atlanta began shortly after graduating from Morehouse College, when he worked for Fulton County Court Appointed Special Advocates, a non-profit that advocates for abused and neglected children. He later focused his efforts as a community volunteer, empowering and mentoring LGBT youth. Most recently, Mr. Huntspon spent the past two years working closely with a non-profit called Every Woman Works, moving women from dependency to self-sufficiency. As the co-chairman of its largest annual fundraiser, Stars Dancing To Change Lives, he has helped to raise over $250K for the organization. He also spent the past nine years at Impact Church as a volunteer in their Worship & Arts department.

Though Atlanta has inspired professional and philanthropic growth for Mr. Huntspon, his roots in Monterey, California continue to be his foundation. As a proud native, he served extensively in a juvenile detention center as a guest speaker and counselor to young men in solitary confinement. He also split his time as a student staff member for a local non-profit, successfully expanding outreach for the organization.

His service to the community is guided by the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”

Why I Support Lost-n-Found Youth:

I am passionate about ending homelessness for LGBT youth here in the city of Atlanta, and feel strongly that our LGBT youth need a safe place to find refuge. That is why Lost-n-Found and its mission are so critically important.
