Nancy Stephens lives in Los Angeles with her filmmaker husband, Rick Rosenthal, and their three children. Nancy transitioned seamlessly from a long and successful acting career and member of the Actors Studio to being a full time advocate for both Environmental Sustainability and the Arts. Nancy is an environmental sustainability advocate and this interest animates some of the Rosenthal Family Foundation's grantmaking. Grantees include Conservation International, NRDC, Best Friends Animal Society and Nature Conservancy of Wyoming. Another important grantee is Union of Concerned Scientists, where Nancy sits on the board. Nancy has been an active political fundraiser in Los Angeles for progressive Democrats. The family via their foundation supports organizations like California Women's Law Center, Feminist Majority Foundation, National Partnership for Women and Family, People for the American Way, and Liberty Hill Foundation, a social justice organization in Los Angeles.
