“I’m introduced to some of the most remarkable people involved in philanthropy. Their dedication is incredibly inspiring to witness.”
After graduating from Lewis & Clark College in Oregon in 1981, Jose Barquin moved to New York City to work in the nonprofit universe. Today, Jose is a corporate vice president at CCS and has been with the firm for over 15 years. He brings with him two decades of experience working for leading nonprofits before joining the team.
“The more I learn about the nonprofit community, the more I realize that it fills in where government lacks the resources. A lot of innovation has come from philanthropy and that in turn has influenced the rest of the world,” says Barquin.
Jose serves on the Advisory Board of the Aravind Eye Foundation, which supports the India-based Aravind Eye Care System, the world’s largest provider of eye care services. Aravind has treated more than 32 million patients and has performed over four million operations.
Jose currently resides in Florham Park, New Jersey with his wife and three children and is heavily involved in the community.
