Director of Planned Giving and Finance
Carrie Park has been on the Foundation staff since 2007. She serves as the Director of planned giving and finance. Carrie has focused her career as a CPA for over a decade in working with high net worth individuals and generations of families in the areas of retaining and transferring wealth; charitable planning; estate and gift planning; multi-generational planning opportunities and tax compliance. Carrie's clients value her personalized attention and relationship-based approach in helping them develop and implement their financial goals. One of the most satisfying parts of what Carrie does at the Foundation is the building of relationships with donors. To her it is a breath of fresh air to come alongside a family that has such a tremendous love for the Lord and a heart of responsibility for their children and assist them in accomplishing both their financial and non-financial goals through their Estate Plan. Leaving a legacy and heritage is important to Carrie. When she is not in the office, she loves to spend time with her husband and two boys.
