Favorite Thing About ACF
The people she meets. Laura loves hearing fundholders’ stories – where they came from, what motivates them, and the positive impact giving has made on their lives.
What She Does
Laura meets with potential fundholders to discover their philanthropic passions and show them how they can do great things through the community foundation. She also leads the foundation's Professional Advisor Council – an esteemed group of area wealth managers, trust officers, attorneys and accountants – to create giving opportunities that are simple and accessible for fundholders.
What She Did Before
Laura’s entire professional career has been in development, for both corporate and nonprofit organizations. Prior to joining the community foundation, Laura was the director of development for the Akron Symphony, where she managed all annual fund giving, corporate sponsorships, special events and grant writing. She’s a graduate of the College of Wooster and lives in Highland Square.
