The North Carolina Community Foundation has renamed the regional associate position to regional director, according to Sally Migliore, NCCF director of community leadership.
As regional directors, these NCCF associates have management responsibilities for NCCF’s affiliate foundations. Position titles were expanded to more aptly reflect the scope and depth of duties, Migliore said. “In the capacity of facilitating board leadership, our regional directors develop and support the boards’ work to grow philanthropy, build endowments and administer local grantmaking in their counties,” she said. NCCF has eight regional directors who oversee affiliate advisory board activities in regions that directly serve 67 counties in the state.
NCCF CEO Jennifer Tolle Whiteside noted that these positions are key to the organization’s mission to ensure that philanthropy is available throughout the state, with a focus on rural areas. “Without the position of regional director, we could not carry out our work across the state,” she said.
