TIM GILL, 63

Founder and co-chair, Gill Foundation

Quark software founder Tim Gill started the Gill Foundation in 1994 with the goal of advancing equality by supporting nonprofit organizations that serve lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) and allied individuals, as well as people with HIV/AIDS. Over the years, the foundation has given more than $304 million to programs and nonprofit organizations, LGBT advocacy groups, education, civic engagement and public broadcasting.

Foundation CEO Courtney Cuff says Gill likes to direct the attention to people who work in advocacy nationwide.

“It’s never about Tim,”

she says. “It’s about the work and making progress and having a positive impact. He has an indefatigable spirit and a belief that there will be a great outcome in the future, and he is relentless about achieving it.”
