The mission of Madison Community Foundation is to enhance the common good through philanthropy.

Created in 1942 as Madison Community Trust, MCF helps people do their charitable giving their way, to causes they care about most. By starting a named endowment fund, or by giving to a Community Impact Fund, a fund that supports their favorite cause or nonprofit, or leaving a permanent legacy of support, donors become catalysts for good today and for generations to come.

As the community’s foundation, MCF plays a vital role in local philanthropy. MCF is unique in its deep knowledge of the community and its philanthropic expertise. But what makes a community foundation strong is the community of donors who come together through it. Together with donors and the nonprofits they support, MCF strives to help the Madison area become a vibrant and generous place where all people thrive.

Assist in leading MCF's community impact work, facilitating Community Impact and Field of Interest grants. She uses her deep understanding of the local nonprofit field and the emerging challenges and opportunities in Dane County to help ensure strategic investment of MCF's grantmaking resources. I also works with nonprofit organizations to move from grant ideation through implementation and evaluation.
