The trustees of the Community Foundation are responsible for ensuring we stay on track, hold to the right values, and have the right vision and mission. They give sacrificially of their time and expertise and we are very grateful to them. This month, we are delighted to welcome Adrian Johnston and John Gordon as new Trustees.
Adrian, Director of Operations at Digital Catapult NI has been involved with the community and voluntary sector for 25 years, focussing on reconciliation and youth work activities. Passionate about making an impact where it is most needed, Adrian firmly believes that the role of the Community Foundation will be crucial in further enhancing social cohesion.
John who recently retired as Senior Partner with a leading Belfast Law Firm, brings to the Community Foundation a wealth of experience in company and charity law allied to a personal interest in charitable giving. One of the Community Foundation’s core values is generosity and the work of the Community Foundation brings together John’s professional and personal interests, making a difference in communities across Northern Ireland.
Welcoming Adrian and John as Trustees, Andrew McCracken, CEO of the Foundation said “Their wealth of experience and knowledge both personally and professionally, will make a tremendous contribution to the Board of the Foundation and communities across NI” adding “The growth and success of the Community Foundation is due in no small part to the knowledge and dedication of our Trustees. Their contribution and commitment has been a key element in a journey that began in 1979 and has ensured that we continue to connect people who care to causes that matter.”
