Thank You for 10 Years, Mary Grace

Today, Seattle Foundation celebrates and expresses our gratitude to our Chief Brand Officer, Mary Grace Roske.


December 06, 2019

After 10 years with our organization, Mary Grace (Seattle Foundation's Chief Brand Officer) announced in September that she would be leaving the organization at the end of the year. From leading our rebranding effort nearly five years ago to brokering high-impact partnerships throughout the community to launching GiveBIG, Mary Grace has been an exceptional leader and the architect of so much of our ethos. We are grateful for all she has done to propel our identity, story, and reputation as the community’s foundation throughout the Seattle region. She will carry Seattle Foundation with her.

“Mary Grace was the first Seattle Foundation employee that I ever met and has been a uniquely positive, courageous and supportive partner to me since that moment," shared President & CEO Tony Mestres. "A lifetime of contributions have been appreciated by the Foundation and the community alike from her decade of invaluable service. I will miss her as a partner, member of our Leadership Team, and advocate for the Foundation’s mission in innumerable ways.”
We know the next chapter of her career will be marked by impact, heart and courage. Thank you, Mary Grace!
