Senior Community Investment Officer
Grantmaking & Community Impact
(734) 663-0401 x21
As an inaugural member of the very first AAACF Youth Council in the 1989-1990 school year, Chris came full circle when he joined the Community Foundation in 2009 as the Youth Council Advisor. Now, as the Senior Community Investment Officer, he works to create impact in Washtenaw County, focusing on AAACF’s strategic grant programs and evaluation. Chris' experience as a Youth Council member continues to inspire the work he does today; he believes deeply in the potential of youth to serve their communities when they are empowered to do so. Chris continues to invest in youth through his ongoing coaching of youth lacrosse in Dexter. Born and raised in Ann Arbor, Chris took a short “leave of absence” to obtain his BA in psychology at MSU before returning. Having also been a local business manager with an extensive volunteer history and a deep involvement in conversations about issues facing local youth, Chris is invested in the health of Washtenaw County.
