Announcing Our New Executive Director: Emma Rogers!
December 5, 2019
The Children's Foundation Board of Directors is pleased to announce that it has appointed Emma Rogers as its new Executive Director. A proven social entrepreneur and experienced local leader in charity management, Emma will assume the reins on Tuesday, December 10. The position has been vacant since the spring and the board initiated an extensive search and interview process before making its selection.
“Emma Rogers is a dynamic and visionary leader. Her ability to work strategically with community champions and stakeholders will allow the Children’s Foundation to continue to shine and advocate for children and families in the communities we serve,” says Ray Stultz, Chair of the Board of Directors.
Emma was most recently Director of Marketing (Ontario) with IG Wealth Management, following four years with United Way Guelph Wellington Dufferin, where she was director of Community Relations and Engagement. She has also been widely recognized as co-founder of Guelph Gives, a community charitable initiative to encourage civic philanthropy and business engagement that was launched in 2014 and continues to run each December on Giving Tuesday. For this volunteer leadership, she received the Guelph Mayor’s Award, Paul Harris Award, and was recognized as one of the community’s Forty Under Forty.
“I firmly believe the non-profit sector creates positive foundational change throughout our community, and in my opinion, one of the best places to continue to foster that change is with our children and youth," says Emma Rogers. "The Children’s Foundation is a key player when it comes to our community’s future success as we ensure all children have the opportunity to thrive and feel empowered to reach their full potential - a vision and mission that is very close to my heart. I am beyond excited to lead the Children’s Foundation into its next chapter and further the meaningful difference it makes in our community.”
Emma is looking forward to meeting the many donors, volunteers and community partners over the coming months as she settles into her new role at the Children's Foundation.
