Alison Moore

Comic Relief US

Before taking the reins as CEO of Comic Relief US, Moore held different C-level roles in the fashion and technology arenas. She was Condé Nast’s Chief Business Officer for its Beauty Collection, overseeing brand strategy and operations. That division was responsible for several media properties, including Allure and Glamour. She was also the Chief Revenue Officer at tech company SoundCloud, a digital music platform. Before those roles, she held senior management posts at HBO and NBC. Aside from her role as Comic Relief CEO, she’s currently a board member for TRACE, a self-described media and entertainment platform specializing in music and entertainment for an Afro-urban audience.  

Why They Made the Worthy 100: As CEO of Comic Relief US, Moore oversees an organization that approaches fund-raising by uniquely combining entertainment and philanthropy. The organization’s fund-raising efforts directly target root-cause poverty and social injustice issues, and they’re doing it with laughs. Currently, Comic Relief touts two campaigns as its fundraising engine. Pickled has Stephen Colbert and the Funny or Die team holding an all-start pickleball tournament on CBS on November 17th, 2022. Then there’s the world-famous Red Nose Day; an annual event founded years ago by Comic Relief UK. But in the U.S., it’s raised over $324 million since 2015, and its funds have been distributed evenly between the needy in the U.S. and those in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
