The Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa is excited to announce that Sherita Jenkins has joined the organization as its Director of Community Impact!
Sherita brings over 15 years of nonprofit experience including extensive community and volunteer engagement. She most recently served as the Director of Community Volunteers for the Alzheimer’s Association, Iowa Chapter, and her resume also includes the University of Iowa Center for Advancement, and Horizons, a family service alliance in Cedar Rapids.
As Director of Community Impact, Sherita will oversee all grantmaking activities of the Foundation, with a focus on Black Hawk County, and will serve as a key leader in CFNEIA’s impact model in which asset development, grantmaking, and nonprofit relations are integrated to maximize our organization’s impact in our communities.
Sherita is a long-time resident of Cedar Rapids. She and her two young sons recently moved to Waterloo and are excited to dive into the community.
“I am incredibly excited to join the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa team and to be a resident of the Cedar Valley,” said Sherita. “I can’t wait to get to know my new community in-depth. I know the best way to do that is by having conversations with the people living and working here. As Director of Community Impact, I want to learn as much as possible to understand how the Foundation can partner to create the greatest impact.”
