Hers is the hand that controls a spigot pouring out $220 million a year in grants, more than any other foundation in Chicago. Though Stasch has held the top job for barely a year, she’s already well into a major overhaul: MacArthur is narrowing its focus, seeking a bigger impact in fewer areas (justice, climate change). “The sooner we tackle things,” she explained to this magazine in September, “the sooner the people affected by negative conditions can find relief.”
