Dear Donors and Friends of the Orange Catholic Foundation,

I am honored and excited to join the Orange Catholic Foundation as the new Executive Director. I would like to thank everyone for the warm welcome, including Jim Normandin and the Foundation's Board of Directors for their support and assistance in helping me transition into this position. 

Having served as the Director of Major and Planned Gifts for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles since 2015, I am confident I will be able to advance the mission of the Foundation to raise, manage, grant and grow funds supporting all aspects of the Catholic faith following donor's intent. 

I am dedicated to maintaining the high standard of the Foundation and plan to work with our Catholic community to steward your philanthropy, in support of parishes, schools, ministries and religious vocations. I am also committed to developing our Foundation's strategic plan in alignment with the diocese and will remain focused on providing legacy giving support to our Catholic community. 

As you may have seen in the initial announcement regarding my appointment, I will leverage my background in board development, strategy enhancement, fiscal expertise and community outreach. I will continue to build the Foundation's legacy, working alongside our devoted board members, enthusiastic staff and motivated diocesan leadership team. 

We have our bi-annual Wills and Trusts Week coming up soon. I am thrilled to be joining each session and hope you take advantage of this free resource that we offer. If you would like to register, visit www.OrangeCatholicFoundation.org/willsandtrusts/.

I hope to have the opportunity to get to know you better and look forward with great anticipation to the year ahead. If you would like to contact me, please call 714.282.3027 or email me at [email protected].

Thank you for your continued support of the Orange Catholic Foundation and please keep us in your prayers during this exciting transitional time. 

May God bless you and your family always!
Kimberly Jetton
