The Community Foundation of Boone County is proud to announce two promotions: Julie Reagan to Vice President of Advancement and Ali Maxey to Director of Education.

CFBC’s mission is to connect people, organizations, and philanthropy to support a thriving Boone County for all. We accomplish this by:

1. Engaging the community and educating our citizens on how to make a difference here at home

2. Investing in people, programs and organizations that transform lives and communities and

3. Leading a vision for collaborative solutions to address the root causes of challenges facing our community.

As we head into 2023 and beyond, now is the perfect time to elevate and challenge our team members to strategically align our mission, vision, and core values. These two team members are key to The Community Foundation of Boone County’s success in maintaining and growing permanent endowment funds to strengthen Boone County forever. I could not be more proud to promote, elevate, celebrate, and serve alongside them.

President & CEO, Community Foundation of Boone County

“The creativity, passion and drive that Julie Reagan brings to the table is unparalleled.  She strikes the perfect balance of innovation and collaboration with our donors, nonprofits and communities to achieve our pillars of Brand Amplification, Community Leadership and Donor Services & Engagement. 

Likewise, Ali Maxey is unmatched in her dedication to exceptional service and pivotal agility in elevating Boone County’s youth through engaging community leaders, donors and key stakeholders to transform our communities – from the smallest population in Advance to the largest in Zionsville, and everywhere in between.” – Jodi Gietl, President & CEO, Community Foundation of Boone County


As VP of Advancement, Reagan is responsible for executing several aspects of the CFBC mission, including identifying community needs and grantmaking impact, executing all CFBC grants, brand amplification and development, and continuing to manage the Women of Impact Boone County philanthropic giving group. In the past four years as Director of Marketing for CFBC, Reagan was instrumental in increasing the media footprint for CFBC throughout the county and communicating local needs during the COVID-19 pandemic. By increasing awareness throughout the county, CFBC has built new relationships with Boone County residents and educated them on who CFBC is and how they can get involved through volunteering, donating, joining Women of Impact, and more.

There are so many ways people can get involved with the work of the Community Foundation of Boone County to address local, unmet needs. We have an amazing group of nonprofits serving our Boone County residents and we love to see our communities come together and work collectively as a whole – to make a major impact in helping those in need.

As Director of Education, Maxey is responsible for all areas of education within the foundation, including continuing to execute $250,000+ in scholarships/year, managing relationships with scholarship fund advisors, school corporations, and education foundations, organizing several of CFBC’s programs, including the Boone County Nonprofit Network and Connect Boone County, and supporting CFBC community leadership. Over the past five years in her previous role as Director of Scholarships, two of Maxey’s greatest accomplishments are successfully increasing awareness of vocational awards to all parts of the county and building a strong base of relationship and partnership with our schools. As a result, CFBC continually received an increased number of applicants for our more than 55 scholarship funds.

Without a great relationship with schools, we wouldn’t be able to impact so many students and support their families with the expense of post secondary educational expenses. At CFBC, we are proud and grateful to have the support of our community and donors, and know that – together – we maintain growth, positivity, and excitement for the future.
