President and CEO
I serve alongside our board of trustees as a steward of the funds donors have entrusted to us. I enjoy being able to connect people to the causes they care about most.
Donor Relations and Communications Officer
Taking on the role of donor relations and communications officer allows me to touch on many different levels of the work we do here at BACF.
I am the program officer that oversees the Youth Advisory Committee, Men’s Philanthropy Group, and our scholarship program.
Director of Finance
As director of finance, I manage the Foundation’s financial accounting and work closely with the president and CEO, and BACF’s Stewardship Committee on investments, operations, and forecasting.
As a program officer, I am responsible for administering the Foundation’s grant processes and facilitating allocating committees’ activities.
As a program officer, I provide support for our various programs. Most of my work is currently centered around our DEI initiative and our grants program.
As the administrative officer, I provide support to the Community Foundation by processing gifts, preparing mailings, assembling meeting materials, and maintaining the historic integrity of the Pere Marquette Depot building where the Foundation office is housed.
As a program associate, I support our scholarship programs and childcare initiative to serve Bay and Arenac counties. I am primarily focused on providing support to local students so that they can continue their education and obtain a post-secondary degree or skilled trades certification.
