Jones has 18 years of consulting experience and has led a thriving independent consulting practice providing advisory and strategy services to a mix of nonprofit organizations and funders. She has a diverse and extensive experience as a consultant, staff member and Director on many nonprofit Boards, and her background in journalism has contributed to her expertise in communications and fundraising strategies.

“I am thrilled to welcome Robin to Arbella and have her continue to build on the excellent work we have done in our communities over the last 18 years,” said Donohue. I also want to thank Beverly Tangvik for her tireless commitment, leadership and contributions that will leave a lasting legacy on our organization. During her tenure as the President of the Foundation, she has overseen millions of dollars in charitable donations to several hundred different charitable organizations annually and her impact on the culture of the Foundation cannot be understated. I also look forward to partnering with Robin Jones in her role as Executive Director and I know that her passion for giving back will be an asset to our Foundation.”
“As I step into this role, I would like to thank John and the Board for their confidence in me,” said Jones. “I am both honored and excited to have the opportunity to work with such a talented leadership team, employees and agents. I am honored to be able to build on the momentum started by Beverly over the last 18 years. As we look ahead, the Foundation’s mission remains the same: to support nonprofit organizations and causes that provide services to individuals in need. Together, we will continue to grow and strengthen our local communities.”
