DeSantis takes reins of Yolo Community Foundation

The Yolo Community Foundation announced that Dan DeSantis has been appointed executive director effective Tuesday, July 1. DeSantis and his wife, Kathy, moved to Davis from Fresno to be close to their son, daughter-in-law and two grandsons.
DeSantis was the CEO of the Fresno Regional Foundation for the past nine years. During that period the foundation’s assets grew from less than $20 million to more than $60 million, and the foundation’s role and influence in the Central Valley expanded significantly, said Meg Stallard, president of the Yolo Community Foundation.

In his new position with the YCF, DeSantis is expected to raise the visibility of the organization, strengthen its financial position and enhance its relationships with local nonprofits, Stallard added.
“We are very pleased to have Dan join our team,” she said. “During his tenure with the FRF, he helped them increase their presence and effectiveness in the San Joaquin Valley in a way that we hope to do here in Yolo County.”
The Yolo Community Foundation has been in existence since 2002. It is guided by a 12-person voluntary board of directors and has assets of $1.5 million.

The foundation recently entered into an affiliation agreement with the Sacramento Region Community Foundation. Since that time, YCF has doubled the number of funds it holds.

New funds include two held by the Cache Creek Conservancy, three held by the city of Davis, two held by the Senior Citizens of Davis (a nonprofit organization), and funds of the Woodland Shakespeare Club, the Western Yolo Recreation and Aquatic organization and a family fund.
