BCCF Appoints New Board members, Re-Elects Officers

Ron Schaufelberger and Kayley Woker are the newest members of the Bond County Community Foundation (BCCF) board of directors. Schaufelberger is an “at large” member while Woker fills the board seat designated for the Greenville Chamber of Commerce executive director. The new board members were welcomed during the BCCF’s recent annual meeting. Woker, a graduate of SIU-Carbondale with a degree in agricultural systems, grew up on a rural Greenville farm. She also serves as Greenville’s Tourism Director. Schaufelberger is a life-long Bond County farmer who also serves on boards for Southwestern Electric Cooperative, Bond County Senior Center, and Greenville First Christian Church. He and his wife, Karen, have three children and five grandchildren.

The foundation’s officers were re-elected during the meeting: Alan Gaffner, president; Brad Turner vice president; Pat Kious, secretary; and Jay Jolliff, treasurer. Other board members are Howard Elmore, Jill Franks, and Wes Olson.

Founded in 2014 to bring donors and local needs together, the BCCF was launched by The First National Bank based on the success of its Old Capitol Foundation in Fayette County. The foundation’s mission is to promote and facilitate the “furtherance of charitable and educational opportunities” in Bond and adjacent counties.

Current endowments under the BCCF include the Bond County CEO, Bond County Fair Association, Bond County Humane Society, Bond County Independence Day Festival Association, Comets Sports Boosters, DeMoulin Museum, GHS Music Boosters, Kingsbury Park District, and Mulberry Grove Sports Boosters.
