Karen Gartrell

Program Assistant and Scholarship Coordinator

As Program Assistant, Karen provides support to the program team by managing project timelines and conducting research to help us reach more individuals in our region. Her impact on the Community Foundation can be felt from the planning stages of projects and grant cycles, all the way to the post-project research she conducts to learn from our own work. Karen has enjoyed being a “go-to” person for our team since 2018.
