Donald Westbrook, PhD, Executive Director and Founder

Dr. Westbrook founded Practice What You Preach Foundation in 2011 in response to research on the growing number of religiously unaffiliated Americans–sometimes referred to as the “rise of the nones.” The mission of PWYP Foundation is to provide a space for religious as well as non-religious Americans of all stripes to work together on projects of common interest, in particular through community service work and educational site visits in the Greater Los Angeles Area. In this way, the Foundation aims to be more service and educationally-minded than some other inter-faith organizations. Dr. Westbrook holds a BA in Philosophy from UC Berkeley, MA in Theology from Fuller Seminary, and PhD in Religion from Claremont Graduate University.

Donald serves as Executive Director and in this capacity oversees the officers, board members, advisory board, and volunteers who contribute to the Foundation’s governance and activities. He can be reached at donald@pwypfoundation.org.
