Welcome to the 5th virtual BBC Friday of 2021 – Week #47 – with special guests Jim Hopper, Executive Director, and Brigette Yates, Development Officer, of the Bainbridge Community Foundation.
NOTES from this week’s meeting: BBC_vFriday47_5Feb2021
“The seeds of Bainbridge Community Foundation (BCF) were planted many decades ago. In the late 1970s, active citizens on Bainbridge Island recognized the need for a permanent and reliable source of income for area nonprofits when urgent needs arose—a complement to the annual fundraising of One Call for All. “With residents so invested in the well-being of this island, it was no surprise that community members came together in 2001 to create the Bainbridge Community Foundation. The vision was simple: to encourage, inspire, and provide meaningful ways for people to enhance and sustain our unique way of life.” (bainbridgecf.org)
Brigette Yates joined BCF after working as Associate Director of Advancement for the Haring Center (a UW school and educational research facility). Prior to that she spent more than 10 years in advancement at UW, including at the School of Nursing and Regional Advancement. Brigette earned her MPA from UW’s Evans School of Public Affairs in 2010. She is the mother of three daughters, and her husband Jeremy is an estate-planning attorney in private practice.
Jim Hopper, Jim incorporates industry best-practices and a national perspective to guide the foundation through economic shifts and philanthropic trends. His leadership strategy is based on extensive experience serving nonprofits throughout the Pacific Northwest, particularly in the areas of operations and donor services. He lives on Bainbridge with his wife Sarah and their three children.
