News & Event
It is with a mixture of sadness and excitement that we write to share that our Communications Manager, Lina Pierson, has recently relocated out of state to pursue new opportunities. Luckily for us, Lina will continue in her role remotely through the end of February and beyond that, will still be sharing her phenomenal graphic design skills with us from afar.
We are excited for her and are confident she will do amazing work and positively impact the community around her wherever her future plans take her. At the same time we are very sorry to say farewell to such a talented and dedicated teammate.
Lina’s connection with CFHZ runs deep, from her time as a Youth Advisory Committee member to her graphic design work for us before she joined our team full time in 2017. Since then, Lina has gone above and beyond to make our publications shine, share inspiring stories of our donors and nonprofit partners, and provide outstanding experiences to guests at our ever-growing events. She has also been active in the community beyond her role at CFHZ as a Board Member and Communications Chair for Holland/Zeeland Young Professionals, a Steering Committee member and Treasurer of Women of Color Give, and a Planning Committee member for TEDxMacatawa. We are deeply grateful for all the ways Lina has made a difference at CFHZ and in the Holland/Zeeland community!
Lina’s new direction means we are looking for a new teammate. You can find a Communications Associate job posting here. If you know of anyone who loves telling stories about nonprofits and donors, and has the technical skills to manage CFHZ’s communications and marketing plan, please encourage them to apply! Applications are due February 3rd.
Do you have an eye for detail, love working with people and want to be part of an organization making a positive difference in our community? The Community Foundation is looking for a new Administrative Assistant to do just that.
This position is open due to a current team member moving into a new position. We are now looking for a new individual to step into this important position on our team. As a small office, the Administrative Assistant plays a critical role in ensuring the office runs smoothly and that every person who calls or walks through our doors has a welcoming, positive experience. The Administrative Assistant is involved in key customer service and financial processes as well as providing support for CFHZ events. As a growing organization, we need the person who serves as Administrative Assistant to support our office and staff in providing the best possible service to our community.
The mission of the Community Foundation of the Holland/Zeeland Area (CFHZ) has two parts; building and managing a permanent philanthropic endowment dedicated to ensuring the Holland/Zeeland area continues to thrive, and providing services to local donors to help them achieve their charitable giving goals. Both involve a significant amount of philanthropic dollars coming in and out of the organization. The Foundation has over 600 charitable funds which collectively have more than $80 million in assets, and in 2018 these funds received more than $20 million in new gifts and distributed nearly $6 million in grants back into the community. It is an exciting time at the Community Foundation, and we need someone to help keep us organized and set up for success as we see interest in our organization and the services we have to offer continue to grow.
All are welcomed and encouraged to apply. The Community Foundation of the Holland/Zeeland Area (CFHZ) will provide equal employment opportunity and not unlawfully discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, citizenship status, religion, height, weight, veteran status, genetic information, pregnancy, or any other status protected by law.
