SJF is excited to officially welcome Kim Powe and Molly Chidsey as the co-chairs of our Board of Directors.
Molly is currently the Community Partnerships Project Manager for Metro regional government in Portland, where she leads efforts to incorporate racial equity into the regional garbage and recycling system. She has participated in two Portland-based SJF giving projects and joined the board in 2013.
Kim was introduced to SJF in 2015 and participated in the Seattle-based Environmental Justice Giving Project that year. She joined the board in 2016. Kim currently serves as the deputy director at Puget Sound Sage.
Thank you Molly and Kim for helping to lead SJF at this exciting moment of growth for the organization!
At a happy hour in Portland on March 1, SJF celebrated Dianne Riley (pictured far right) who recently stepped down from five years as SJF’s Oregon Director to take a job at the City of Portland.
We also officially welcomed new Portland-based staff: BW White (far left), our new Oregon development manager; and Melody Martinez (center), our Oregon program manager who started in August 2017.
