Based in Aspen, Colorado, Our Part was founded by two passionate, driven women fighting for a better world.
Jill Soffer is an Aspen, Colorado based philanthropist, focusing on Climate and Democracy initiatives. Through her foundation, Our Part, she expands her investments by engaging and collaborating with peers, maximizing the efficacy of our work.
Jill is an active board member of The Sierra Club Foundation and the NRDC Action Fund, left and center on Climate, respectively. Her local service includes the public lands protector, Wilderness Workshop, and the 2Forks Club which supports community farmers. She graduated from Brown University and Barnard College. Her passions include friends, family, her animals and everything in the mountains.
Rebecca Mirsky is an Aspen, Colorado based fundraiser focused on public land conservation, climate action, and democracy issues. From 2015-2019, Rebecca was the Development Director for public land advocacy organization, Wilderness Workshop, based in Carbondale, Colorado. Beginning in late 2018, Rebecca and Jill developed the idea of using their relationships, skills and passion to educate and engage more philanthropy in Democracy and Climate work. Thus was born Our Part. Rebecca has worked in philanthropy as Development Director of Aspen Film and Education Director for the Aspen Art Museum. Formerly, Rebecca worked in contemporary art in New York City, as the director of multiple galleries, including founding her own, 33 Bond Gallery, in 2007.
