Bright Future Foundation adds program manager
AVON — Bright Future Foundation in Avon recently added Holly Kasper-Blank as its new sustainability program manager. Each year, the nonprofit assists more than 600 individuals and families affected by domestic violence and sexual assault within Eagle County. Kasper-Blank researches funding opportunities for Bright Future’s prevention, advocacy, crisis intervention and recovery services to help empower those individuals.
“A majority of our financing comes from government and foundation grants, so it is crucial for us to have Holly on staff to research and write grants,” said executive director Sheri Mintz. “We also receive a large amount of funding from individuals, businesses and organizations in our community, and Holly interacts with those contributors.”
