Thank You! An NCG Departure

Friday, April 13, 2018

Andrea Zussman, who joined NCG in the fall of 2016 to establish a Disaster Resilience, Relief, and Recovery program to support regional philanthropic disaster planning and readiness, will be leaving her position to devote herself full-time to the needs of her family. Andrea will continue to guide NCG as a Senior Advisor and consultant.

Andrea’s efforts in response to the North Bay fires last fall were nothing short of extraordinary. Under her leadership, nearly a hundred members – many of which do not consider themselves to be disaster funders – came together to mount a robust, coordinated philanthropic response to the crisis.

NCG has developed a transition plan to sustain the program while we seek a replacement for Andrea in the coming weeks. In the interim, please direct any questions to NCG’s Director of Regional Vibrancy and Sustainability, Steve Barton at

Please join us in thanking Andrea for her service.
