Foundation Board

A key reason for the Community Foundation of St. Joseph County’s remarkable success has been its ability to engage outstanding leaders from throughout our community to govern and build the organization. George M. Haley, M.D., served as the Founding Chairman. Other past board chairs include Thomas Cassady, Sr., Chuck Roemer, Ernestine Raclin, Donald G. Cressy, Patrick L. O’Malley, Richard B. Urda, Jr., James F. Keenan, Edwina Kintner, Myrtle Wilson, George Cressy, Jr., Nancy N. King and Timothy D. Sexton.  Currently, Jeffrey P. Costello serves as Chairman of the Board of Directors.

The Community Foundation is governed by a diverse board of community citizens chosen from throughout the community to provide leadership and direction to this rapidly growing organization. Further, the board provides stewardship to the personal charitable legacies being established every day by local citizens.
