Jul. 18, 2018: As The Community Fund embarks upon our 100th anniversary in 2019, the organization is evaluating how we ensure that our overall impact represents the different stakeholders in our community and how the fund will adapt to the ever-changing needs of our residents.
With this in mind, we are excited to introduce thirteen new members to The Community Fund board: Amy Atkeson, Hilary Blumenreich, Jay Curran, Amy Krause, Robin Lewis, Sheila Marcotte, David O'Shaunessy, Patricia Reilly, John Schneider, Katie Shah, Mark Webb, Dan Wilson, and George Winn.
Our new members represent a strong cross-section of Bronxville, Eastchester, and Tuckahoe residents. Their backgrounds are diverse and wide, and the skill sets they bring to the board are numerous. These valuable skills include finance, public relations, marketing, volunteer management, donor relations, and community organizing and support. Each individual offers the organization a fresh perspective on what The Community Fund can do to ensure that we are serving all residents as well as supporting those most in need.
The common thread weaving together all thirteen new members is the deep commitment they share and their goal to make our community strong and sustainable. With their exceptional backgrounds and valuable knowledge, they have the necessary skills to make that goal a reality.
Please join us in thanking our new board members for their commitment to the organization!
We would also like to extend a very special thank-you to the nine board members retiring from board service this year. Their dedication and support to the organization will be greatly missed. Retiring board members are Dana Arrighi, Robert Castano, Jennifer Nelson Colao, Fran Harris, Rosetta McArdle, Doug Meyer, Jim Rotenberg, Thomas Sipple, and Mark Welshimer.
