We are pleased to announce that Sue Pyke will become the Associate Director of the RSF Foundation effective September 1, 2015. The Associate Director is a new position at the Foundation. Sue will have strategic and operational responsibility for the staff and programs, as well as relationship development with San Diego nonprofit partners.
More than 55 nonprofit organizations have established endowed or non-endowed funds at the Foundation. Sue’s experience with strategic planning, nonprofit governance and donor relations will provide a high value to the Foundation and the nonprofits that partner with us.
Sue has been with the RSF Foundation for three years as Donor Services Director and as Marketing Director. Prior to moving to San Diego in 2008, she lived in Hanover, NH, where she was a founding board member and vice president of the international nonprofit, Lwala Community Alliance. Locally, she has served as board president of GenerateHope and worked as development director at The Cambridge School. Sue has a B.A. from the College of William and Mary and a M.A. in Nonprofit Leadership and Management from the University of San Diego. She has three grown sons and lives with her husband in Del Mar.
The time is perfect for Sue to step into her new role at the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation as we expand our ability to facilitate significant grants to the community and to provide the leadership necessary to bring our donors together in support of issues that are critical to the future of the San Diego region and beyond. Please join me in welcoming Sue to her new role.
