Celebrating CFDRR’s History: First Executive Director

CFDRR’s 25th Anniversary: Celebrating Key Milestones in Our History

In 1999, the Foundation hired its first full-time Executive Director, Debra Dodson.  During her 20 years with CFDRR, Debra devoted her time to building a permanent endowment for the region through the generosity of over 4,000 donors.  Debra helped the Foundation grow from $10 million in assets in 1999 to over $37 million in assets in 2019.
