New on the Job
This week Philanthropy Ohio welcomes Lindsay Wiseman, president of the Community Foundation of West Chester/Liberty.
Title & Organization:
President of the Community Foundation of West Chester/Liberty
Account Manager, Staples
Why did you make the move?
I have a passion for philanthropy and for my community.
What do you hope to accomplish?
I want to be the first place our community members turn to when they think of charitable giving—to be that connector for our donors to the causes that matter most to them. I hope to see our Forever Fund endowment and Community Grants endowment grow to sustain us for future generations.
What’s surprised you so far?
I already knew this about our community, but this role with the community foundation has reaffirmed how charitable our community is, not only with their money but with their time and individualized skills.
What is it about your job that makes you excited to go to work?
I am excited to make connections and to talk with our community members about the needs and how we can work together to improve the quality of life in West Chester/Liberty.
What’s on your MP3 player?
I mostly listen to the radio; any of today’s country music and Q102.
What’s the last book you read?
The Hunger Games series.
