Exciting Staff Changes at the Foundation
We are pleased to announce the creation of a new position at the Foundation with the appointment of Anne McKune as our Director of Philanthropy. Anne has been with the Foundation since 2015 as a Program Officer on our Mission & Impact team and makes this shift as the Foundation continues to evolve to best serve our donors.
As the Director of Philanthropy, Anne will oversee the workflow of strategic donor relationships and manage a portfolio of fund holders interested in transformational philanthropy. Unique to the Community Foundation, this role will connect individual, family, and corporate partners with Foundation-led and community-based work that aligns with their charitable interests. With her deep knowledge of the nonprofit landscape and an understanding of current community needs, Anne will work to create lasting solutions that result in thriving communities.
Anne has over 12 years of experience in the nonprofit sector, where her work has taken her across the globe, from Quito, Ecuador, to Tanout, Niger. Anne holds a B.A. in French and International Studies from the University of Richmond and a Master’s Degree from UNC Chapel Hill’s School of Social Work, where her work focused on community and organizational development.
If you are interested in being more intentional with your philanthropy and creating greater community impact through your charitable giving, Anne would love to talk to you. She can be reached at [email protected].
Concurrently, we welcome Corinne Witzel to the Mission & Impact team as a Program Officer. She complements the Community Foundation’s programs with her expertise in strategic planning, performance analysis, and project management.
Prior to joining CFL, Corinne worked with Louisville businesses to develop benefit corporation operation standards, as well as grant writing and strategic planning for local nonprofit organizations. She also served the local community for over a decade in public land management with Olmsted Parks Conservancy, 21stCentury Parks, and Louisville Metro Government. During her time with Metro, Corinne worked with the Mayor’s Office of Performance Improvement, co-managing Metro Goal 21: Grow as a Compassionate City.
Corinne’s successes in public service and time with nonprofit organizations, including Compassionate Louisville and ChooseWell Communities, were fueled by her ongoing passion to understand what compassion is and how, by supporting community leaders, Louisville can continue to grow as a Compassionate City in serving our most vulnerable populations.
Corinne spent her early days on Michigan’s west coast and obtained her B. S. in Public Affairs from Indiana University Bloomington.
