CCF Director of Grantmaking retires after 23 years of caring for our city.

With bittersweetness in our hearts, we say goodbye to Gwyn Gallagher, the Cambridge Community Foundation’s beloved Director of Grantmaking and Operations, who retires from the Foundation after 23 years of service to the Cambridge community and our nonprofit sector. We are incredibly thankful for her dedication and contributions which touched the lives of so many over the years, and supported shared prosperity, social equity, and cultural richness in Cambridge.

Kind, selfless, and dedicated, Gwyn’s deep love of Cambridge has permeated her work at CCF. She loved working with nonprofits, witnessing first-hand the impact they had in our community, and sharing their work with civic leaders and community members at in-person visits. There was not a week that went by when she did not shop localfor coffee, office supplies, gifts, and more. Her love for this city and all those in it is observable in everything she does.

As Gwyn moves on, we could think of no better gift (for the best giver of all) than to establish a fund in her honor.

The Gwyn Gallagher Fund for Cambridge, seeded with $10,000 by the Cambridge Community Foundation, will directly support Cambridge’s nonprofits at Gwyn’s discretion. We invite you to join us in this gift.

The Gwyn Gallagher Fund for Cambridge is a donor advised fund at the Cambridge Community Foundation.
