ROLE AT THE FOUNDATION: (Donor Services & Marketing Director, YEP Staff Advisor)

Noah aims to bring awareness of the Community Foundation to donors and the general community in his role. He works with various communication channels to inspire generosity, showing the impact of donor gifts when invested in community impact. Noah manages the Foundation's website, social media, digital marketing, and printed publications. He also oversees YEP, a high school youth-led committee of the Foundation that models philanthropy by giving their time, talent, and treasure.

"I love the work we do here. We work with generous people who want to be generous to others in the community. We make that connection between donors and their charitable interests. Part of my role is to tell those stories and share the impact. In addition, YEP brings me great joy. Working alongside students as they explore philanthropy is amazing. It's exciting to watch them grow as leaders and take full responsibility for the money they distribute in grants each year."
