Austin Community Foundation has announced the resignation of Jeff Garvey, the organization’s CEO since 2011.
“Our board accepts Jeff’s decision to leave his full-time role at ACF with genuine appreciation for his service,” Steve Shook, Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Austin Community Foundation, said. “Our staff and search plans in place promise a smooth transition,” Shook added, noting Garvey remains CEO until May 15.
“ACF’s 34 year-long history is about being a trusted philanthropic partner by helping generous people give wisely where they wish,” Shook said, “and we accept change, knowing from our long history that change often goes hand-in-hand with our region’s dynamic growth.”
With current assets of more than $100 million, the Austin Community Foundation helps Central Texans connect donors to causes they care about. ACF manages assets and provides a variety of services for more than 900 donor-advised funds for individuals, families, corporations and non-profit organizations.
