“We are pleased to have Paige step into this critical leadership position,” foundation President and CEO Shaun Floerke said. “She has demonstrated finance skills and a keen eye for detail as we have implemented new systems. We are fortunate that she and our organization will grow together.”

Bramstedt has helped bring a new financial management system to the foundation and leads efforts to update and enhance connections with donors as well as administration of grants and scholarships.

“I feel blessed to be part of this team making a difference in the community, especially because this is the community I have always called home,” Bramstedt said.

“I love the emerging vision of the foundation and look forward to seeing it come to life into a future that will extend well beyond any of us,” she said.
