Community Foundation announces board

From page B1 | February 05, 2014 |

The El Dorado Community Foundation is pleased to announce the 2014 officers of its board of directors as follows: board president, Paul Zappettini; vice president, Lois Patrick; secretary, Karen Carter; and treasurer, Chris Reeg. John Black is the immediate past president.

President Paul Zappettini has served on the board since 2011 and was the vice president in 2013.

He earned a bachelor of arts in political science in 1976 and his juris doctor degree from University of California, Davis in 1980. Today, he is a principal in the Law Offices of Zappettini and Bradley located in Sacramento.

Zappettini and his wife, Erin Dealey, have lived in El Dorado County since 1978 and truly feel at home here. While his law offices are headquartered in Sacramento, he has an active practice in El Dorado County.

He volunteers with the El Dorado Superior Court, including the Teen Court program; served as president of the Sugarloaf Station Foundation from 1993-2012, working in partnership with the El Dorado County Office of Education and Sugarloaf Fine Arts Camp; and currently serves as the president of Kiwanis of Placerville.

Zappettini feels very fortunate to have these opportunities to give back to his community. His entire family believes strongly in volunteerism and philanthropy and these qualities make him a natural and valued asset of the foundation.

The foundation is also honored to welcome back its founding board president Kathleen Watt Peek to its board of directors.

Peek has stayed a close friend of and fund holder at the foundation since its inception. Most recently, she led the way to the creation of the Women’s Fund El Dorado (a fund under the foundation’s umbrella) with a focus on teaching philanthropy for future generations.

The Women’s fund currently touts a donor member base of more than 300 individuals who exemplify the power of collective giving and effective granting here on the Western Slope of El Dorado County.

At a recent dinner, the foundation also honored outgoing board members Charlie Stephens and Maureen Carter.

Stephens and Carter both volunteered nine years of service to the foundation’s board as well as various sub-committees.

“I have enjoyed working with good people doing good work. It has been a great ride,” said Stephens.

The El Dorado Community Foundation is a designated nonprofit organization serving its donors for the benefit of the residents of El Dorado County since 1991.
