 About the Speaker:

Heidi Sytsema is the Vice President of Development and Donor Services at the Community Foundation for Muskegon County, where she works with donors and nonprofits to build a culture of philanthropy and a vibrant community for all in Muskegon County.  She's been there since 2006 and is often heard to say she has the best job ever. A "recovering CPA" Heidi spent 13 years helping businesses and individuals navigate the world of taxation before moving to the nonprofit sector.  Her B.S. in Accountancy from Calvin College has served her well in both fields.   Heidi is lucky to live in downtown Muskegon in a big old house with her husband and dog and one, two, or three of their great kids, depending on the day.  She serves on the boards of Community enCompass neighborhood development organization, the City of Muskegon Downtown Development Authority, and her church.
