I am excited to share the news that the Trustees of the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts have selected Megan Burke, a leader with a deep understanding of philanthropy and community foundations, to be our next President and CEO. Megan’s first official day at the Foundation will be January 18th.
Megan serves as the current Director for Community Impact and Grantmaking for the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving and is a West Springfield resident. She is a dynamic, collaborative, and visionary leader with a demonstrated commitment to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion and to supporting community engagement. Her multifaceted experience, both personal and professional, makes her uniquely equipped to lead our organization. The press release announcing her selection tells more about Megan and shows why she is an excellent choice for this position.
The Trustees and I are looking forward to Megan’s future contributions to advancing the Foundation’s mission and strategic initiatives. I know you will join us in welcoming her in the coming weeks and months as events and opportunities are put into place.
