As a ten-year member of the Board of Directors for the Blackford County Community Foundation, Julie Forcum has seen the Foundation double the size of its assets while she served. Forcum brought considerable knowledge and experience to the Board as she had previously served on the board of Jay County’s community foundation, the Portland Foundation. During her time on the Blackford County Community Foundation Board, Forcum worked on the grants committee and often shared her expertise with the investment, publicity, and development committees. She also served as the Board’s secretary for several years.

Her service to this community is much appreciated.
