Don Vander Kooy

Don Vander Kooy, formerly a member of the Kalamazoo Community Foundation's board of trustees, has been named Interim President/CEO of the Kalamazoo Community Foundation.

Don's philosophy, style, experience––he retired from the Chief Executive Officer position of Family & Children Services in 2005––and knowledge of the Community Foundation's work make him a perfect fit for this role.

The Community Foundation's board of trustees is conducting a national search for a permanent successor to former President/CEO Juan Olivarez, who recently left the Community Foundation to become President of Aquinas College. Kittleman & Associates of Chicago is conducting this search.
