Saying Goodbye to Diamond Walton

We’re sad to share that Diamond Walton has transitioned out of her role with the Community Foundation. Diamond joined our team in January 2020 as a programs manager. She helped to administer the Enriching Communities grant program and then, when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, grant programs associated with the Community Emergency Response Fund. She and her teammates worked tirelessly on the Community Resource Helpline and later the Community Recovery & Catalyst Grants.

“Our community is so fortunate to have an organization like the Community Foundation, which works diligently not only to elevate community assets but also to help address systemic inequities,” Diamond said. “It has been a privilege to work with such a gifted and committed team.”

Diamond is now working with the Tipping Point Fund on impact investing to support philanthropists as they work to advance the impact-investing sector. We appreciate the invaluable ways she has contributed to the work of the Foundation during some of the most challenging times in our region. We celebrate her new opportunity and wish her the best of luck!
