NCG member Community Foundation Santa Cruz County announced last month the appointment of Jim Brown as a program officer/grants manager. He will work with Program Director Christina Cuevas providing help, services and support to local nonprofits.
Jim brings many years of leadership experience in the local nonprofit sector, along with a commitment to supporting people, the arts and social justice.
"One of the best lessons I've learned over the years is the importance of relationships in all aspects of life, but particularly in grantmaking," Jim said.
For the past three years, Jim was the grants and technical assistance manager at Arts Council Santa Cruz County. There, he managed a grants program supporting local artists and arts organizations, along with coordinating workshops, peer learning and other professional development opportunities.
Please join us in welcoming Jim to his new position and the NCG community.
