The Community Foundation of Teton Valley is pleased to announce the selection Kim Trotter of Driggs as the organization’s new Executive Director.
“We’re excited about Kim joining the Community Foundation and look forward to making her part of our team,” said Tim Watters, CFTV board chair. “She brings a high level of leadership skill, philanthropic experience, and knowledge of local nonprofits to the position.”
Trotter has served the last seven years as director of the Idaho Water Project for the statewide office of Trout Unlimited. From 1999-2005, she was a land protection specialist at Teton Regional Land Trust. She has secured more than $10 million in funding for land conservation and stream restoration in Idaho through federal, state, and private partnerships.
“I’m excited to put my passion for this area, love of its people, and experience as a nonprofit leader to work for CFTV so I can give back to the community that has been so generous to me,” Trotter said.
Hailing originally from Pocatello, Trotter earned her master’s degree at Duke University and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Puget Sound. An avid bicyclist, she was the top volunteer fundraiser for the Huntsman Hometown Heroes Little Red Riding Hood event in 2012.
Trotter will start her duties at CFTV in early March.
