Anna Curts

Anna is a Harrison County native and graduated from Corydon Central High School in May 1980, with a major in Business Administration. She spent twelve years at the Keller Manufacturing Company as a Personnel Assistant which included different levels of administrative duties at all three locations; Corydon and New Salisbury, Indiana, and Culpeper, Virginia. Anna completed the yearlong Keller Management Training & Development Class.

She furthered her business administration career at Employment Plus, Inc., Bloomington, Indiana. Anna was hired as a staffing specialist for the Corydon office and promoted to Selling Branch Manager during her nine years of service. Because of her attention to detail, she received numerous awards, including Learning & Development, and a Management Award. Her employer wrote this in a reference letter. “Anna consistently demonstrated a great deal of initiative, motivation, and unwavering company loyalty. Her extensive Human Resources knowledge, strong interpersonal skills, and attention to detail made her a great asset to Employment Plus.”

Anna’s community activities and non-profit experience prior to the foundation included attending Harrison County Chamber of Commerce’s business after/before events, Metro United Way’s annual campaigns; American Cancer Society’s telemarketing fundraiser; March of Dimes; American Heart Association’s “Heart Walk”; and the Muscular Dystrophy’s “Lock up”. She spearheaded the Human Resource Roundtable Meetings so local businesses could gather monthly to discuss human resource issues.

Anna was hired as the Administrative Assistant in May 2009. Along with her main duty of front gatekeeper tasks, she maintained the Imagination Library database and provided general program support. By September of the same year, she assisted in administering the scholarship program.

In 2010, Anna eagerly added the Marketing role to her job description. She communicated with donors and continued creating the foundation’s one-of-a-kind detailed Fund Information Sheet. During this time she also assisted with the grant process by aiding in the review of applications and gathering information for the Program Manager to present.

In June 2012, she took on a new role as Grants Manager, which meant she was very involved in the training of the new Administrative Assistant while learning her own new duties. She was very hands on with the creation, implementation, and continuation of the foundation’s first online grant application.

She continues to expand her learning skills every day by cross-training with other staff members whether it is the website, marketing or finance.

Anna has attended numerous webinars and trainings on various philanthropic topics. She has successfully completed the Essential Skills and Strategies curriculum through Indiana Philanthropy Alliance and HCCF’s Non-Profit Board Governance Training. She is currently one course away from receiving her Certificate in Nonprofit Executive Leadership from IUPUI The Fund Raising School.

Anna graduated from Leadership Harrison County in 2010 with perfect attendance.
