Jasper native Clayton Boyles has recently been named as the new director of the Dubois County Community Foundation. Boyles replaces Brad Ward who left the position earlier this year to accept a similar position in Washington D.C.
Also Nona Baker has been promoted to the position of associate director. Both appointments were made by the foundation’s board of directors.
In a news release, board president Andy Seger says following a comprehensive search process, they are thrilled to welcome Clayton back to the foundation as the new executive director.
Seger says they believe his background and leadership experience working with donors, nonprofit organizations and others active with philanthropy in Dubois County provides an excellent fit for the Community Foundation moving forward.
Seger says they are further excited to recognize Nona’s contributions to the foundation and the Dubois County community through her promotion.
A graduate of Jasper high School, Boyles possesses a master’s degree in nonprofit management and a Certificate in Fundraising Management from Indiana University. He is the son of Bob and Deb Boyles of Ireland.
He served as a Donor Relations Associate of the Community Foundation from 2013 thru 2015 and most recently as a Major Gifts Officer at the Sisters of St. Benedict.
Boyles says being able to come back to the Community Foundation to work with the team, board members, volunteers and donors is a dream come true.
Baker has been with the Community Foundation since 2013, most recently serving as Director of Programs. With this new expanded role, she will oversee operations for the Foundation, while continuing to lead programs and grants.
Community foundation past president Pat Miller says the Board of Directors is looking forward to a very bright future with Clayton, Nona and their talented and experienced team at the Foundation.
