After nearly a decade of dedicated service, Paula Gruszynski, Executive Director of the M&M Area Community Foundation, has announced her resignation. Gruszynski took the helm of the Foundation in February of 2015 and has since steered it with unwavering dedication and vision.

During her tenure, Gruszynski spearheaded numerous initiatives focused on enhancing the lives of residents across Marinette and Menominee counties. Among her many accomplishments, she proudly championed the Future Fund Children’s Savings Account Program, ensuring that every kindergarten student in the region benefited from both financial literacy education and a $50 savings account to support their aspirations after high school. This innovative program provides children with hope, encouragement and a promise that they are valued.

Under Gruszynski’s leadership, the Foundation has elevated its mission, expanded its impact and fostered a culture of collaboration and unity. Her unwavering commitment to the Foundation’s mission has affirmed its position as a driving force for positive impacts in the region.

Reflecting on her time with the Foundation, Gruszynski expressed gratitude for the opportunity to serve the community. “It has been a privilege to work alongside our dedicated team and community partners in advancing the Foundation’s mission of enhancing the quality of life for all residents of Marinette and Menominee counties,” said Gruszynski. “I am immensely proud of the progress we have made together and am confident that the Foundation will continue to thrive in the capable hands of its staff and board members.”

The Board of Directors of the M&M Area Community Foundation extends its heartfelt appreciation to Paula Gruszynski for her exemplary leadership and tireless dedication over the past nine years. “Paula’s visionary leadership has been instrumental in driving the Foundation’s growth and impact,” said Kerry Delgoffe, Foundation Chair. “We are deeply grateful for her contributions and wish her all the best in her future endeavors.”

The MMACF Board will commence a search for an Executive Director to build upon its strong foundation and lead it toward continued growth and service to the community.
