NCG member The California Wellness Foundation announced yesterday that Vice President of Communications Magdalena Beltrán-del Olmo announced her retirement. Her last day at the Foundation will be February 6, 2015.

Judy Belk, Cal Wellness’ president and CEO, expressed her deep appreciation for Beltrán-del Olmo, who introduced the Foundation to a journalistic storytelling tradition in the 1990s when the concept was new to philanthropy. Beltrán-del Olmo strategically implemented a first-rate, multilingual communications program that embraces the dynamic diversity of West Coast news media....

Beltrán-del Olmo joined the Foundation in August 1996 as its first director of communications and was appointed vice president in April 2002. She built the nationally recognized, multilingual program that forged new territory by leveraging the Foundation’s clout and resources to elevate the work of grantees and the voices of unsung nonprofit leaders. She also played a key collaborative role in the Foundation’s landmark public education campaigns focused on violence prevention and teenage pregnancy prevention....

Beltrán-del Olmo has served as an ambassador for the Foundation, having held several leadership positions throughout the nonprofit world, including service on the boards of the Communications Network, Hispanics in Philanthropy and, most recently, Southern California Grantmakers. She was appointed by the California State Senate to serve as a commissioner for the nation’s first blue ribbon panel on autism.

Please join us in congratulating Magdalena on her oustanding career and wishing her well as she begins a new chapter in her life.
