Mauri’s first encounter with Whatcom Community Foundation was as a grantee. She was the founding executive director of what is now the Downtown Bellingham Partnership. Several years later, she was asked to serve on the Foundation’s board of directors where she served for three and a half years. In 2007, she became President and CEO. Her work experience prior to WCF includes working for two different nonprofit organizations based in Washington D.C. and operating two restaurants with her husband Lee. She has volunteered her time supporting many different community organizations including Sustainable Connections, Northwest Economic Council, and the YWCA. Mauri currently serves on the board for Philanthropy Northwest and the Association of Fundraising Professionals. Among Mauri’s favorite things in life are being alone on a run or long walk with her camera or just being with her family and enjoying our community.
