Will Ginsberg has announced that he will retire from The Community Foundation in November 2024 after more than 24 years in his position as president & CEO. “Will’s legacy is one of growth, innovation and community leadership,” says board chair Marcella Nunez-Smith, MD, MHS. “In recent years, Will’s Opportunity + Equity vision has transformed how we work and who we serve.” The Foundation’s board has formed a search committee and hired the executive search firm Koya Partners.

Additionally, Foundation chief operating officer Angela Powers will be leaving her position at the end of 2023 after nearly 27 years of service.

“Angela has been an indispensable leader,” says Ginsberg. “At different times over the course of her tenure, she has led our planning, operations, stewardship, development and communications work and she was also the founding CEO of the Valley Community Foundation. We will miss her greatly.”

“The departures of Foundation Chief Operating Officer Angela Powers at the end of 2023 and President & CEO Will Ginsberg in late 2024 signal the start of a new era at The Foundation after more than two decades of remarkably strong and stable leadership,” says board chair Marcella Nunez-Smith, MD, MHS. “The board of directors is committed to listening to our community and to assuring a smooth and planful transition so that The Foundation is best positioned for continuing growth and service to the community in the future.”
