A West Michigan organization chose an educational leader to sit on its 2020 board.

Grand Rapids Community Foundation elected Daniel Williams, president and CEO of West Michigan Center for Arts + Technology, to serve on its board of trustees.

“We are delighted Daniel agreed to share his time, expertise and vision with us by joining our board of trustees,” said Diana Sieger, president of the Grand Rapids Community Foundation. “The community foundation has bold aspirations for the future of Kent County. Our board members are key partners who teach us, challenge us and help us realize those aspirations.”

Williams will serve alongside 11 other members to guide the strategic direction of the organization, which supports nonprofits, leads social change and helps donors with their philanthropic goals.

“The community foundation understands the interconnectedness between systems and communities like grassroots organizers, donors, K-12 and higher education, workforce development and finance,” Williams said. “I have been so energized by their commitment to authentically engage with all of these communities to collectively revise and rethink what philanthropy can look like in West Michigan.”

The foundation’s 2020 board of trustees is chaired by Michael Rosloniec, family wealth/institutional consulting director at Graystone Consulting, and Kathleen B. Vogelsang, director and chief investment officer at Van Andel Institute, is the vice chair.
