Graham Tuttle, Chief Executive of the Norfolk Community Foundation, has decided to step down from his role after 8 very successful years in post.
The Bishop of Norwich, the Rt Revd Graham James, and Patron of the Foundation, praised Graham’s invaluable work and said – “Graham has made an enormous contribution to the growth and development of the Norfolk Community Foundation and has helped change many people’s lives for the better across Norfolk. Together with a small team, Graham has helped to build one of the most successful Community Foundations in the UK which is financially secure for the future. He has encouraged organisations and individuals across Norfolk to work together for the common good. NCF is only 12 years old and yet it is now a key player in Norfolk life, and we owe much of that to Graham’s dedication. He will be greatly missed and goes with our gratitude and best wishes for the future.”
Graham commented that “It has been an honour to be the Chief Executive of the Norfolk Community Foundation and to develop and lead such a wonderful team. I am so pleased that through our grant making and partnership working we have been able to make such a big difference in the County. Since our creation we have awarded grants with our donors that total in excess of £22 million and in that time have supported over 2,380 groups. I am happy in the knowledge that the Foundation is in a strong place and the new Chief Executive will inherit a wonderful organisation and I wish them every success.”
Graham will be with the Foundation until December 2017 and can be contacted on Grahamtuttle@norfolkfoundation.com.
