The Foundation supports initiatives, activities, programs, and partnerships that grow, enhance, and sustain Brevard’s quality of life. With Sandi's arrival in 2010, the Foundation has transformed its impact with new technology, initiatives, and partnerships to advance the nonprofit sector, its collaborations and capacity, and enhanced community awareness.
Prior to the Community Foundation, Sandi founded a Virginia-based company and served as President/CEO for 20 years followed by consulting work throughout the country with organizations that included the nonprofit sector, business, and government.
