Leadership Update from Tim Gill & Scott MillerWed Jul 19, 2017
Last Thursday, our president and CEO Courtney Cuff shared some big news with us. In October, she will be leaving Gill Foundation after four remarkable years to take on an exciting challenge leading a new campaign of the Hopewell Fund to improve the lives of working families across America. We are very happy for Courtney and thrilled about the important work she will be undertaking.
Courtney has been a strategic, creative, and fierce leader at Gill and in the LGBT movement and we are deeply grateful to her. Among her many achievements, Courtney has led the charge as the movement and our grantees shifted from marriage to nondiscrimination, spear-headed an effective southern strategy building remarkable alliances with businesses and people of faith, helped to create and launch Freedom for All Americans, and worked with the National Parks Service to study and designate multiple sites preserving the heritage of LGBT sites across America. Courtney has been an amazing partner to OutGivers and ran two amazing conferences that helped focus our collective efforts on the work ahead to achieve lasting equality for our community.
Courtney would be the first to give credit to our amazing staff at Gill, our hard-charging grantees and the OutGivers who make this all happen.
We have vital work to do. Thanks to Courtney and all of you, Gill Foundation is in great shape. We know that transitions and change are never simple but thanks to the leadership each of you exhibits daily, we are confident about the road ahead. Fortunately, Courtney will be here with us until October, allowing for a very smooth transition.
Please join us in thanking her for all her amazing work.
