Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo

Celebrating Milestone Anniversaries at the Community Foundation

Dec 22, 2017 | Posted in Home Page, News

As we wrap up 2017 and look ahead to 2018, we want to pause and celebrate two of our employees that are celebrating milestone anniversaries at the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo.

Jean McKeown, Vice President, Community Impact, marked 20 years at the Community Foundation in 2017. When she joined the team in 1997, she was the only program officer. Today, the Foundation has a Community Impact team of ten and sometimes gives out more in grants in one month than was given out the entire year in 1997. The list of her accomplishments at the Community Foundation is endless. The Foundation’s success and outstanding reputation can be, in large part, traced to Jean. Her commitment, perseverance and thoroughness are unmatched.

We also want to celebrate another employee celebrating an anniversary. Kate Masiello, Senior Director, Client Relations, joined our team in 2007, and is celebrating ten years at the Community Foundation. Kate has set the standard for high touch, personal client service that the Community Foundation has become known for and has helped the Foundation grow to more than 850 funds and over $440 million in assets.

Congratulation and thank you Jean and Kate for your extraordinary commitment our clients and our community!

Jean McKeown, Clotilde Perez-Bode Dedecker, Kate Masiello
