The Yampa Valley Community Foundation (YVCF) is excited to introduce two staff members joining our team. Greg Hamilton will start July 25 as Program Officer and Kerry Guzek has already stepped in as Accounting & Administrative Specialist.
As Program Officer, Greg will serve as nonprofit liaison, spearheading grantmaking and delivering capacity-building trainings to strengthen and support the work of nonprofits in the Yampa Valley. Greg has been an active community member in the Yampa Valley since 2010, volunteering as a board member for Friends of the Yampa, co-launching the Mountaintown Film Collective, serving on the Chamber Marketing Committee, and until recently working as marketing director at Strings Music Festival. With his training as a cultural anthropologist, career experience working with nonprofits, and great enthusiasm for all things Yampa Valley, Greg will be an energetic and valuable member of the team.
Kerry comes to YVCF with extensive experience in accounts payable, office management, customer service, and project coordination. She has already jumped in with both feet, assisting with a wide range of tasks and projects as Accounting & Administrative Specialist. This is a new role for YVCF and one which we believe will allow the organization continue to grow and help maintain our high standards of integrity and stewardship.
Tim Wohlgenant, Executive Director of YVCF, says “The Community Foundation is charging into the future, with dramatic increases in assets, an updated website, new headquarters on the way, and two new staff who are going to strengthen the organization even more. The future is bright.”
