The Branch County Community Foundation is thrilled to welcome Karen Hargreave to the Board of Directors.

Karen is a long-time resident of Quincy, Michigan where she is very involved in the community. She received her associate degree in Accounting from Kellogg Community College as well as a bachelor's degree in Management of Human Resources from Spring Arbor University. Her professional career included working for The Department of Community Health as a consultant for the Revenue Enhancement Project as well as the quality manager in a small machine shop.

She has served on many boards including the Adapt Board for 18 years, providing services to county adult foster care recipients and the Branch County Mental Health Board.

An excellent representation of Quincy, Karen has in-depth knowledge of community needs both at a community involvement level, but also with experience as a local landlord. She has served on BCCF’s policy committee for one year, and is always prepared and ready to discuss the policies for the meeting and brings a level of insight that complements the other committee members.
