We are pleased to announce two staff changes at Headwaters Foundation. Melissa Rudnick joins Headwaters Foundation as our new Senior Program Officer. She most recently worked as a Senior National Organizer for Bend the Arc: A Jewish Partnership for Justice. Previously, she worked as a Lead Organizer for one of our grantee partners, Jewish Community Action. The Senior Program Officer will be responsible for the planning, development, implementation and evaluation of our core grantmaking programs as well as special initiatives and projects.
Maria De La Cruz has accepted the role of Associate Executive Director. For the last year, she has demonstrated exceptional leadership and strategy in her role as the Development Director and she served as one of the lead staff in the strategic plan. In her new role, Maria will have overall strategic and operational responsibility for Headwaters Foundation’s community-led grantmaking, leadership development, and development/communications programs.
Please join us in congratulating Melissa and Maria on their new roles!
