A Note from the Departing Interim Executive Director, Allen Smart

A word of thanks to the staff, Board and High Point Community-at-large. I have had the privilege of serving as the Interim Executive Director of the Foundation for a Healthy High Point since August. I have come to appreciate the great problem-solving energy in the community as well as the deep inequities experienced by many of the residents. With some sense of a resolution of the COVID-19 crisis on the horizon, the Foundation can begin to recommit to community and to becoming a leadership force for the health of the entire population.

I am enthusiastic about the new Executive Director, Curtis Holloman. Curtis is a nationally known foundation programmatic leader and has some great plans for ensuring that the Foundation for a Healthy High Point will continue to seek its highest level of impact. I have known Curtis for 15 years and he will be fully committed to the community- both professionally and personally.

While I will maintain a relationship with the Foundation through a 2021 transition period, I will be moving back to my full-time consulting roles with funders and non-profits. I encourage you to stay in touch at allen@ruralphilanthropy.net or via my website at www.philanthropyworx.com. Peace.
