Tiffany comes to the Executive Director position with a strong background in philanthropy, leadership, management, and community development.

The board initiated a comprehensive search process to find an individual with the experience, dedication, and vision to effectively manage and grow the Community Foundation well into the future. “Our Board of Trustees is thrilled to introduce a leader of Tiffany’s caliber into our community to guide our Community Foundation,” said parent Board President, Jim Evans. “It was evident to the committee almost immediately that Tiffany’s ability to perform at the highest level along with her experience in development and philanthropic leadership would align very well with the work of the Community Foundation.”

Evans continued, “I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Paula for her excellent leadership of the Community Foundation. She will be retiring after a tremendous 19-year career as Executive Director. She has grown the Foundation to great heights and leaves us well positioned for success into the future.”

Tiffany stated, “This commitment perfectly mirrors my own passion for philanthropy and community betterment. I am enthusiastic about the prospect of leading the Elk and McKean County Community Foundation to new heights of community impact.”

Paula Fritz Eddy added, “I could not be happier to welcome Tiffany as the new Executive Director.
