The North Central Michigan Community Foundation (NCMCF) recently elected two new people to its Board of Directors. Elizabeth Steinhurst and Angela Miller began the first of three, three-year terms in May.
Elizabeth Steinhurst is a lifelong resident of West Branch in Ogemaw County. Steinhurst has been involved with NCMCF for many years, helping to establish the Sheryl Krantz Memorial Scholarship Fund, and serving on the Ogemaw County Committee for NCMCF, which makes grant recommendations specific to Ogemaw County to the NCMCF Board of Directors.
Steinhurst says that with her time on the Board, she ultimately wants to help donors fulfill their charitable legacies.
“I believe in giving back to the community,” said Steinhurst. “As an accountant, I have a good understanding of the financials and the concept of endowment. I hope to share that information and the opportunities available within the Community Foundation with those in our communities.”
Angela Miller, of Grayling, also joined the NCMCF Board of Directors. As a pharmacist working in both Crawford and Oscoda Counties, and a resident of Crawford County, Miller provides solid representation from two of the counties in the NCMCF service area.
Miller says she is looking forward to serving as an advocate and ambassador for NCMCF, which is working to better the communities of the North Central Michigan region.
Steinhurst and Miller join seven other representatives from across the NCMCF service region of Crawford, Ogemaw and Oscoda Counties. Those Board members are Andrea Rose, President; Jozann Burgin, Vice President; Paul Bailey, Randy Booth, Julie Brooks, Marc Haring and Brad Summers.
“We are thrilled to add Liz and Angela to the NCMCF Board. They both bring important skill sets to the current Board,” said Christine Bruske-Hitch, Affiliate Director of the Community Foundation for Northeast Michigan. “NCMCF is one of our affiliate foundations. It is so important to have strong leadership from across the North Central Michigan region with a vision of how philanthropy and endowments can support their communities forever.”
The North Central Michigan Community Foundation serves Crawford, Ogemaw and Oscoda Counties. NCMCF is an affiliate of the Community Foundation for Northeast Michigan (CFNEM), which holds combined assets of over $46 million. CFNEM serves as the administrative arm for its affiliate foundations. NCMCF is led by a volunteer board of local citizens committed to providing people who care about the future of the region and its communities with unique and effective ways of supporting their community now, and for generations to come. The foundation oversees a group of permanently endowed funds from a wide range of donors. Gifts of all sizes from individuals, families, businesses and agencies are invested in a balanced, well-managed portfolio to build endowments, enabling support for local community nonprofits now and forever.
