Marilynn Fauth has coordinated our programs and services since 2001. She has thirty years of experience as a grantwriter, 20 as a proposal reviewer and 16 as an Executive Director of a grassroots nonprofit. Which means that her answers to your inquiries are based on understanding and having been in your shoes.
Prior to her career in the nonprofit sector Marilynn was an educator; a stay-at-home mom and small business owner. Each of those endeavors added to the skills she now employs in her work with nonprofits. Her most prized accomplishment was becoming credentialed as a Grant Professional, or Grant Professional Certified, which validates knowledge of and competency in the grants profession through education, experience, professional development, community involvement, and a psychometrically sound examination.
Marilynn is driven by a passion for the sector, an appreciation of the diversity represented, as well as an entertaining sense of humor.
Lettie Haver joined the PCNRC as the librarian in 2008. In addition to answering your nonprofit questions, organizing and leading workshops and classes, she co-chairs the Get on Board project. Get on Board works to train, connect and support emerging leaders and the nonprofits they wish to serve and they do it with a committee full of do-gooders and a brilliant co-chair (that’s the other gal).
Having grown up in an old Northeast Indiana farmhouse surrounded by corn fields and pastures and after returning from adventures through the mountains and valleys of Arizona, Lettie is a yet another happily home-again Hoosier.
She was named to Fort Wayne Business Weekly’s 40 Under 40 2013 class and one of Northeast Indiana’s top 100 Connectors by Leadership Fort Wayne in 2011. Lettie Bi-County Services, Inc, a service provider for individuals with developmental disabilities as a board member.
