Shenandoah Community Foundation is proud to announce the addition of our newest board member Beverly S. Butterfield.
Foundation President Michael Funk was enthusiastic in welcoming Ms. Butterfield to the Foundation’s governing body “Bev will be an outstanding addition to our Board by bringing diversity and depth of knowledge, expertise, and perspective that will help our organization further its mission and vision.”
A published professional and sought-after speaker, Bev is a graduate of Bridgewater College with graduate courses at JMU and a Master of Science degree in Housing, Interior Design & Resource Management from Virginia Tech. Now the founding principle of Fieldsmith LLC, a fundraising consultancy, Bev comes to us with years of experience in fundraising and organizational development, having served as Lord Fairfax Community College’s Senior Development Officer and as V.P. for Institutional Advancement for Bridgewater College.
Bev’s earlier experience with the Virginia Cooperative Extension Service–first as an Extension Agent in Shenandoah, Augusta, and Fauquier Counties and later as a District Director–gave her extensive oversight responsibilities for large budgets and programs as well as familiarity with grants and contracts. Her fiscal background and her ties to the agricultural heritage of the Shenandoah Valley will be a rich addition to our Board of Directors.
Besides a wide range of professional affiliations, Bev’s impressive community service includes her active involvement with the Woodstock Rotary Club as an officer and current president, the Shenandoah County Library board, the Shenandoah Industrial Development Authority, the New Market Library, and the Linville Creek Church of the Brethren.
Bev lives in New Market with her husband Wayne. They have two children and two grandchildren living in Shenandoah County. From her home kitchen, Bev teaches culinary and textile art classes.
