The DeKalb County Community Foundation’s Grants Manager, Becky Zantout, will be leaving her position at the end of May after over 6 years of exceptional service. Starting with the nonprofit in 2011, Zantout has served in a number of key roles at the Community Foundation, including office administration, Youth Engaged in Philanthropy (YEP) staff advisor, scholarship administration, and grants management. She led many important innovations, such as moving many of the Foundation’s grant application processes on-line and streamlining scholarship communications.
“We are sad to see Becky move on, but very excited for her next chapter as she stays home with her young daughter.” said Dan Templin, Executive Director. “Becky’s contributions to our mission through her enthusiasm, ideas, and program management over the years is greatly appreciated.”
The Foundation will be conducting planning over the next several weeks to determine how Zantout’s responsibilities will be covered in the years ahead. Her last day at the Foundation is May 24. Any future job opportunities will be posted on the Foundation’s website and communicated publicly.
“Professionalism is a critical part of the Foundation staff’s responsibility as stewards of enduring charitable assets for DeKalb County. Becky’s work has exemplified that over the years. I encourage everyone who knows and has worked with Becky to send a note of appreciation and congratulations to firstname.lastname@example.org,” said Templin.
