Even though Liz Tara is the rookie on our team, this is not her first experience with our foundation. She’s been the recipient of an Adolph Coors Foundation “no” as a former nonprofit development director (she feels your pain, development directors!).
A graduate of Hillsdale College, Liz Tara has raised money for public policy organizations and most recently led advancement at The Salvation Army in Washington, DC. Now as a program officer at the Foundation, she pulls from her past work to help nonprofits by using both her head and heart.
When she’s not working, Liz Tara reads, keeps up with her big family, travels with her husband and is always on the hunt for the next best hummus recipe. Living in Colorado, Liz Tara of course loves to ski, but she’ll confess that the first time she ever encountered a ski slope, she ran into the man in front of her and went down the entire mountain hooked onto his skis at a terrifyingly high speed.
