The Harrison County Community Foundation (HCCF) has hired Julie Moorman of Crandall to be the foundation’s new chief executive.
Julie Moorman brings with her 17 years of experience in the field of nonprofit management. Most recently, Moorman served as the Executive Director for Communities In Schools of Clark County (CIS of Clark County), a nonprofit agency that provides academic support, mental health resources and basic needs to at-risk students.
As the Executive Director of CIS of Clark County, she oversaw finances, grant management, fund development, marketing, programs and daily operations. During her four years of leadership, the organization increased their number of sites, serving more students during the school day and in after-school programs.
Moorman’s career background includes working for the Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana for 13 years, including the position of Regional Director where she managed a staff of 10 and a volunteer support team to oversee operations in an 18-county region serving both sides of the river.
Also, Moorman has held leadership positions in Student Affairs in both Kentucky and Illinois at major universities. She served as the Chair for the Nonprofit Roundtable with One Southern Indiana, providing resources to other non-profit leaders.
Moorman is a graduate of Heidelberg College, where she received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration and Public Relations. She earned her Master of Science degree in Higher Education from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, Illinois.
Moorman grew up in a big family in Dayton, Ohio. Moorman and her husband, Jim, moved to Crandall in 2014 to get closer to family and to live in Harrison County. Their two teenage kids attend North Harrison schools and are involved in sports and scouts.
Moorman and her family attend First Capital Christian Church in Corydon. In her free time, Moorman coaches girls’ soccer and volunteers as a co-leader for her daughter’s Girl Scout troop.
As the incoming CEO for the Harrison County Community Foundation, Moorman said she is looking forward to continuing the great work that that foundation has done and in leading the foundation into this next chapter of their history. She looks forward to working in partnership with the Board of Directors, staff, donors and community leaders to continue to make Harrison County a great place to live, work and raise a family.
An Executive Search Committee, in partnership with Aly Sterling Philanthropy, led the effort to recruit and select Gilliland’s replacement.
“This is a very exciting time in the life of the HCCF,” Brett Stilwell, HCCF board chair and Search Committee chair, said. “We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to Steve. He has been an amazing servant leader for our organization and the community. It is upon the strong foundation he has built that Julie will be able to continue our history of success and accomplishment for our community.”
Stilwell said Moorman will be beneficial to HCCF.
“Her experience will be a great asset to our organization and we continue to embrace education as a key pillar of our efforts,” he said. “Her enthusiasm is contagious and I am confident that, behind her leadership, the next 20 years of the foundation’s life will be as amazing as Steve’s 20 years of service.”
Outgoing President & CEO Steve Gilliland, who has been at HCCF for 20 years, will assist in the transition. Donors, colleagues and friends are invited to attend a reception in honor of Gilliland’s retirement. The reception will take place on Monday, May 20 from 4:30 pm to 6 pm at the foundation office.
Gilliland and his wife Linda, who recently retired after managing the Hampton Inn for 20 years, will be moving this summer to a new home in Kentucky.
