Bay Area Community Foundation Announces Search for
New President & CEO as Diane Mahoney Resigns

Bay City, MI – Diane (Fong) Mahoney, President & CEO of the Bay Area Community Foundation (BACF), has announced her resignation effective September 24, 2024. The Foundation’s Board of Trustees regretfully accepted Mahoney’s resignation and has begun a search for her replacement.

Since joining the Foundation in December 2017, Mahoney has overseen a 43% growth in assets from $42 million to $60 million. At the same time, $15.7 million has been invested in the community in the form of grants and scholarships, including ARPA grants of more than $1 million through a partnership with the County of Bay. Mahoney currently serves as chair of Bay Human Services Collaborative Council, chair of Saginaw Valley State University’s Board of Fellows, and is a mentor through Big Brothers Big Sisters, among other community activities. While at BACF, Mahoney was named Outstanding Fundraising Executive by the Association of Fundraising Professionals MidMichigan Chapter and Crusader for Freedom by the NAACP-Bay City Branch.

“To say I have enjoyed being a part of this community and the Bay Area Community Foundation would be an understatement,” said Diane (Fong) Mahoney. “The volunteers, donors, and staff are dedicated to making this community the best it can be for generations to come. I leave this community with gratitude for the support of so many, a sense of pride for the impact we have made together, and hope for all that is to come. I will be moving to the west side of the state to join my husband, Dr. Gerard Mahoney, and have accepted a position as executive director for a local nonprofit.”

Amy Cell Talent has been retained to lead the search for a new President & CEO. To learn more about the position or to express interest in applying, please email Info@AmyCellTalent.com. Mahoney will remain with the Foundation through the end of September.
