Cynthia Evans to leave Dodge after 25 years

Posted: Sept. 19, 2019

For 25 years, Cynthia Evans, chief financial officer, has helped provide the financial and operational structure and support within which the Foundation’s staff and grantees could do their best creative work. Evans, who recently served as interim president and CEO, will be leaving Dodge at the end of 2019.   

Cynthia has worked closely with the Foundation’s Board of Trustees and President and CEO and has managed relationships with investment consultants and financial agents to ensure the Foundation meets New Jersey’s future needs.

Cynthia, who has been with Dodge for more than 20 years, also manages the Foundation’s office operations and led the move to its LEED-Gold certified building in downtown Morristown, working closely with architects and engineers on design and construction. She continues to provide green building tours to school groups and professionals interested in learning about its energy-efficient features and getting up close and personal with its green roof and living wall.

Prior to joining Dodge, Cynthia worked as a program officer for New York City’s Community Development Agency, where she administered Community Service Block Grants for nonprofits. She was also a policy analyst with the General Accounting Office conducting Congressional research on issues including Immigration Policy and Security and Exchange Regulations.

Cynthia is treasurer of the Council of New Jersey Grantmakers and is an adviser to local non-profit boards, including Roots and Wings and the Congregational Church of Westfield. 

Cynthia received a bachelor's degree from Hamilton College, a master in public administration from Syracuse University’s Maxwell School, and was awarded a Presidential Management Internship.
