Lincoln Community Foundation announces the promotion of Michelle Paulk to Vice President for Community Outreach. For the past 8 years, Paulk has served as Program Coordinator, assisting with grants and overseeing Give to Lincoln Day. She has 17 years of experience in the nonprofit sector in the areas of database and grants management, donor relations and program administration.
Paulk is stepping into the role as Sarah Peetz retires at year end. Peetz served as VP for Community Outreach at the Foundation since 2010 overseeing grant distributions, community initiatives and fostering donor relations. To commemorate her service to the organization, LCF established the Sarah Peetz Lincoln Forever Fund to support the ever-changing needs in the community as well as opportunities and innovation.
“Sarah’s leadership at the Foundation has been integral to our successful growth to help build a wonderful community,” said Barbara Bartle, President of the Lincoln Community Foundation. “We wish her well in her retirement and look forward to Michelle carrying on this important work.”
