The Arizona Community Foundation is pleased to announce two key promotions in its regional offices. Both regional directors will focus on sustainable asset development, donor and community engagement, professional advisor outreach, and volunteer development across their region.

Sheri holds an MBA from San Diego State University, a bachelor’s degree from New Mexico State University, and is a Certified Nonprofit Professional.

Serving ACF’s southeast region will be Colleen Iuliucci who has also been promoted to Regional Director. Colleen joined ACF in 2021 as a Regional Philanthropic Advisor and has been instrumental in building key local partnerships and engaging donors across southeast Arizona. With over a decade of experience in nonprofit and fund development experience, Colleen brings a wealth of knowledge and dedication to her new role.
