Adrienne Luce is consulting with several clients including serving as the director of corporate social responsibility and president of the Designing Futures Foundation at HMC Architects. In her role, she works to leverage all the firm’s assets to positively impact the communities where HMC operates and its employees live and work. She oversees the foundation’s grantmaking program with a focus on STEM / STEAM education, environmental sustainability, architecture / design, and disaster relief.
Prior to this role, Luce served as the executive director of the California State Summer School Arts Foundation where she raised more than $1 million in two years to provide scholarships to low-income students and operating funds to support the California State Summer School for the Arts. Luce spent nine years at the Getty Center at both the Getty Conservation Institute (GCI) and The J. Paul Getty Museum. At the GCI she managed a large-scale international cultural heritage advocacy program that empowered children to photograph and document the landmarks in their communities. As education specialist for K-12 programs at the Getty Museum, Luce streamlined operations, maximized organizational effectiveness and increased transportation grants to low-income schools by 125%, resulting in a 100% increase in school program attendance in four years.
Making a positive impact in her community has been the unifying thread throughout her professional and volunteer experiences. Luce has served on several nonprofit boards including Inner-City Arts, MOCA Contemporaries, Program for Torture Victims and the Craft and Folk Art Museum Contemporary Craft Council, as well as on the advisory boards of the California State Summer School Arts Foundation and the Inland Empire United Way. As a nonprofit leader, third-generation Los Angeleno, and working mother of three, Luce is deeply invested in the future of Southern California. For more than twenty years Luce has been driven by her passion for creativity and innovation.
