We want to take this moment to celebrate our accomplishments and look forward to connecting with all of you who make this work possible while we bid Norma the fondest of farewells. This is a public event where guests are invited to stop-by at their convenience, wish Norma well, and visit with other community members.

During Schuiteman’s tenure, the Community Foundation has grown from $2 million to $25 million in assets under management and earned the Council on Foundation’s National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations accreditation—a rigorous review of community foundation operations. In 2017, it launched Give Local, an effort to increase community philanthropy through online giving.
Norma Schuiteman stated, “It has been a highlight of my life to see the Community Foundation grow and prosper, and to witness the impact our growth has had on the communities we serve.” She continued, “It has been a special joy to get the chance to work with so many generous donors and nonprofit staff who care so deeply about our community.”
“On behalf of the Board of Directors we would like to thank Norma for her invaluable leadership and outstanding commitment to the mission of the Community Foundation,” said Mary Williams, chair of the Board of Directors. “We look to the future with optimism and enthusiasm as the organization builds on her many successes.”
