About Our Speaker

John is currently employed as Vice President of Development for The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida. He works with donors to maximize the return on their philanthropic giving.

John joined the staff of the Foundation in 1997. For the first eight years he served in the grantmaking department, seeing that donors’ philanthropic intent was carried out by making grants in the communities the Foundation serves.

In 2005, he transitioned to Donor Services/Development department. Using his prior grantmaking experience, he crafts giving plans that fulfill donors’ philanthropic interests. He also provides staff support for the Foundation’s four professional advisory councils.

John was an inaugural member of the Southeast Council of Foundations, Hull Leadership Program and was President of the Planned Giving Council of Northeast Florida. He is also a member of the Estate Planning Council of Northeast Florida.

He and his wife, Karen are active in their church where they sing in the choir and he serves on its property and finance committees. He enjoys cycling, snorkeling, pipe organ tinkering and old house restoration.

The Planned Giving Council of Northeast Florida brings together nonprofit and for-profit professionals merging their expertise in estate and tax planning, financial planning and charitable giving to foster awareness and to provide an effective forum for education, communication, networking and collaboration for our gift planning community.
