Kara Carlisle and Anne Kubisch

Celebrating our leadership transition

This week we celebrated the retirement of Anne Kubisch and welcomed Kara Carlisle as the third president and CEO of The Ford Family Foundation.

With over two hundred guests in attendance – including family and long-time friends of Kenneth W. Ford and Hallie E. Ford, Foundation staff, grantees and partners – a celebration was held in Roseburg to honor Anne Kubisch’s legacy and to introduce Kara Carlisle to her new community.

We look forward to you meeting Kara and thank you for your partnership in ensuring that children have the family, community and educational supports they need to succeed. We are excited to enter this new era together.
