Kelly Huber has over 15 years of experience in the nonprofit sector working in all aspects from executive leadership, fundraising/development, and programmatic capacities. However, some of her favorite work since starting at CFSA in 2014 surrounds building funder collaboratives and community partnerships. In her current role as Senior Director, she is responsible for the strategic direction and oversight of all community investments, including competitive and donor grantmaking, supporting organizations, programs/initiatives, and awards/scholarships. Every day she feels lucky to work with and learn from the amazing southern Arizona nonprofit community…#nonprofitlife. She earned a BA in Spanish, BS in Environmental Science, and MS in Nonprofit Organizational Management. Personally, as the mother of two young boys, she has learned more about Lego and Minecraft than she ever needed to know and, as a native Tucsonan, her favorite Eegees flavor-of-the-month is Lucky Lime.

After receiving my B.A. from Ohio Wesleyan University and MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, Clint spent his early career in the for-profit industry making ads, building skyscrapers, and helping businesses relocate. His passion, however, lied with his weekly volunteer work at Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago; a friend noticed and suggested he enter the nonprofit field. Two weeks later he joined the staff of the Golden Apple Foundation and never looked back. While working as a High School teacher in the Chicago Public School system, Clint received a call from Don Stewart, the CEO of the Chicago Community Trust to see if I would be interested in a position at the foundation. Two weeks later, he accepted the job and has been working with committed donors and nonprofits for nearly 20 years.
