February 25, 2019
Mary Mélon, president and CEO of The Foundation for Oklahoma City Public Schools, has taken on new leadership roles in a national organization.
She now sits on the board of directors of the National School Foundation Association (NSFA) and co-chairs the group’s Industry Leadership Council, which she joined in 2017.
The Industry Leadership Council is comprised of professionals who understand the value of national efforts to raise the knowledge base, profile and impact of education foundations. It helps guide industry growth and engage leaders.
“Education foundations are critically important,” Mélon said. “We hope to help organizations across the country raise their profiles and connect business and community leaders with local schools. Direct involvement is the first step to creating excellence in education for every student.”
The NSFA is the leader of the pre-K to 12th grade education foundation movement in the U.S. It provides training and support for foundation development and their quest to increase student success through strategic philanthropic investment and involvement.
