Madison Community Foundation is pleased to welcome fund development professional Angela R. Davis as its new development director. As a member of MCF’s Donor Engagement team, Davis will work with individuals and giving partners to support charitable causes meaningful to them. Giving partners include A Fund for Women, as well as MCF’s six regional giving partners: Columbus Area Endowment, Lodi Area Community Endowment, Middleton Endowment, the Monona Fund, Portage Area Endowment, and Rio Community Fund.
Founded in 1993, A Fund for Women is an endowment fund with more than $2 million in assets and approximately 2,000 donors. To date, the fund has invested nearly $1.2 million in 70 area nonprofit programs and initiatives that empower women and girls to reach their potential. MCF’s regional giving partners raise resources for their endowment funds and support charitable causes in their communities, such as schools, parks and community centers.
Before joining MCF, Davis served as development officer for Wisconsin Historical Foundation, which advances the mission of the Wisconsin Historical Society. Davis has experience working in government, nonprofit organizations, and higher education, including ten years as a stewardship and donor relations director at Purdue University.
“I am thrilled to have this exciting opportunity to work with the MCF, an organization that for the last 74 years has made it their mission to support meaningful initiatives and connect people in the Madison area,” said Davis. “It is a dream come true to collaborate with dedicated individuals, families and organizations that have a passion for making a difference and serving this community.”
“We’re thrilled to have Angela joining our team,” said Bob Sorge, MCF president. “Her energy and warmth are evident when you meet her, and her commitment and experience will be vital in moving the interests of MCF stakeholders and the community forward.”
Established in 1942, Madison Community Foundation is comprised of more than 1,000 endowment funds with approximately $160 million in assets. In the last 25 years, together with its donors, MCF has distributed some $200 million to more than 400 local nonprofits. In 2017, MCF will celebrate its 75th anniversary.
