Sturgeon Bay, Wis. (March 8, 2021) – The Door County Community Foundation is pleased to announce the creation of a philanthropic services team. These philanthropic professionals will offer counsel to donors as they develop new and more effective strategies helping Door County’s generous families increase the impact of their charitable giving.
Leading the new team is John Sabo, the Community Foundation’s new Vice President of Philanthropic Services. John joins the Community Foundation after working for a decade in multiple roles at St. Norbert College, including Development Officer, Assistant Director of Advancement Services and Stewardship, and Assistant Director of Alumni Communities. Prior to joining the college, he traveled the world working as a process chemist in the pulp and paper industry. John is a graduate of St. Norbert College and his relationship with his alma mater continues even today as the coach of the women’s golf team. In his spare time, you can find John enjoying Wisconsin’s great tradition of a fish fry and an old fashioned. He also volunteers as a member of the Board of Directors of the charity, First Tee Northeast Wisconsin.
“John is an accomplished philanthropic professional,” says Bret Bicoy, President & CEO of the Community Foundation. “The donors of our community will be well served by his wise counsel as they make decisions about their charitable giving.”
Joining John on the new philanthropic services team is Kacie Mueller, a long-time employee of the Community Foundation. Kacie has been elevated to the newly created position of Philanthropic Services Officer after having worked with the Community Foundation for more than 7 years, serving most recently as Community Relations Officer. Born and raised in Sturgeon Bay, Kacie is committed to building a better future for her children and all who call Door County home.
“Kacie has long been an invaluable asset to both the community and the Community Foundation,” says Bicoy. “In her new role, she will help connect Door County’s generous donors to the charities that are making our community stronger.”
