Strengthening Our Team to Fuel Impactful Giving at Rancho Santa Fe Foundation

A message from Karen Sprigle, Rancho Santa Fe Foundation’s Interim President & CEO.

Rancho Santa Fe Foundation is proud to announce exciting updates within our development and grants team. These changes mark a new chapter in our journey of fostering philanthropy and supporting the San Diego nonprofit community.

At Rancho Santa Fe Foundation, we are committed to creating a positive impact in North County San Diego, and today, I have the pleasure of announcing some exciting updates within our development and grants team.

Amy Myers Promoted to Vice President of Philanthropy and Impact

Let’s start with the promotion of a true fundraising veteran, Amy Myers, to the role of Vice President of Philanthropy and Impact. Amy has been an integral part of the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation team since 2022, connecting donors with regional needs through visionary community leadership and personalized service. She has also led marketing efforts to engage stakeholders in the launch of the Foundation’s new impact pillars.

Amy’s wealth of experience in nonprofit development is truly impressive. Before joining Rancho Santa Fe Foundation, Amy held various key positions in the nonprofit sector, including Senior Executive Director of Southern California and Director of Philanthropy for the American Cancer Society. She also served as a Philanthropy Officer at the Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute and as a Corporate Development Director with Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County.

Amy’s background lends a unique blend of expertise in fundholder stewardship, community engagement, and relationship building with Rancho Santa Fe Foundation stakeholders. Her contributions to our mission have already been significant, and we’re confident that her leadership as Vice President of Philanthropy and Impact will further elevate our work.

Beyond her professional achievements, Amy is an active member of San Diego Rotary (Club 33) and an advisory board member of the Vision of Children Foundation, demonstrating her unwavering commitment to our local community.

Rancho Santa Fe Foundation Welcomes Anna Maria Maybury as New Grants Manager

But the good news doesn’t stop there. We are also delighted to introduce Anna Maria Maybury, who has joined our team as the new Grants Manager. Anna Maria, a North County resident, comes to us with a wealth of experience and passion for philanthropy.

Before joining Rancho Santa Fe Foundation, Anna Maria served as the Executive Director of Girls on the Run San Diego, giving her a unique perspective on the nonprofit landscape. Her dedication to empowering communities aligns perfectly with the Foundation’s mission.

Right now, Anna Maria is working closely with outgoing Programs Director Debbie Anderson, who recently retired, to learn more about Rancho Santa Fe Foundation’s grant operations procedures and other programs that make us unique. Anna Maria will be instrumental in rolling out the Foundation’s three new impact pillars where we will focus our grantmaking.

Join us in welcoming Anna Maria Maybury to the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation team as Grants Manager and in congratulating Amy Myers on her well-deserved promotion. I am confident that our future path is an exciting one that will be marked by increasing our impact in the North County region to address critical issues facing our community. 

As always, thank you for being part of Rancho Santa Fe Foundation’s journey as we continue to strengthen our commitment to philanthropy, community, and making a positive impact in North County. Stay tuned for more exciting updates!
