The Community Foundation of North Central Massachusetts (CFNCM), a public charity serving the philanthropic interests of donors in the north central region of the Commonwealth, has announced that Linda Mack, vice president of philanthropy, will be stepping down from her role effective April 1, 2022.

“After nine years of stellar service, Linda Mack has decided to explore new adventures,” said Stephen Adams, president of the Community Foundation. “Linda has been a crucial part of the Foundation’s growth and development in both financial terms and in our impact across the North Central community. Her professionalism, expertise and attentiveness to the needs of our partners have been instrumental in establishing the Community Foundation as a credible and influential provider of philanthropic services and nonprofit support.”

Mack noted that leaving is bittersweet. “I have truly enjoyed working with everyone from our staff to our fundholders, donors, board members and partners during my nine years at the Community Foundation. It was not an easy decision to make, mainly because of these relationships,” she said. “It has been both a pleasure and a privilege to have worked so closely with so many passionate and generous people, and the stories we shared touched me deeply each and every time.”

“Over the next several weeks we will be working with Linda to ensure a smooth transition for the organization and for our fundholders,” said Adams. “I want to take this opportunity to thank Linda for her role in making my transition to Community Foundation leadership so enjoyable and rewarding and in helping the Foundation successfully deliver millions of dollars of aid and assistance to people in our region affected by the pandemic. Linda’s departure will be effective April 1. We all wish her the very best as she continues to find ways to make North Central a better place.”
