The new year brings change to Community Foundation staff

YVCF Announces Interim Executive Director

We are pleased to announce that the Board of Trustees at the Yampa Valley Community Foundation has named Glory Burns as its Interim Executive Director.

Glory’s work has involved many board and leadership roles. Most recently, she served as Chairman of the Board of Home State Banks, which recently merged with a publicly-traded national bank holding company.  Prior to that, she was senior vice president/portfolio manager at First Western Trust Bank and has had a variety of positions in the financial services industry. Glory is also an attorney and taught Investment Analysis for over ten years at Colorado State University.

Having lived in Steamboat part-time since 1997, Glory and her husband moved here in 2017 full-time and soon after she served as a volunteer on the Community Foundation’s Finance Committee. She is the mother of two grown sons.   When asked about her time in Steamboat, Glory stated, “We really love the vitality of Steamboat with its boundless outdoor activities and cultural events.  We are never bored.”

Mark Andersen announced in September that he will be resigning as Executive Director and his last day at the Community Foundation will be December 31st, 2019.  Mark accepted a position with the Craig-Scheckman Family Foundation.

Community Impact Manager Helen Beall will be welcoming her first child into the world and will be on maternity leave through March 1st, 2020.  For all inquiries during her leave, please contact Holly Wilson at
