The Connecticut Health Foundation has named Tiffany Donelson as its next President and CEO, effective September 1. Donelson will succeed Patricia Baker, who plans to retire after more than 20 years as the foundation’s founding leader.
“I joined the foundation because health equity is something very personal for me,” says Donelson. “While Connecticut has made significant progress, there is still a long way to go to ensure that all of us receive equitable care and an equal opportunity to be our healthiest selves.”
Donelson currently serves as the foundation’s vice president of program, overseeing grantmaking, policy, and communications. The foundation’s board of directors unanimously selected her following a national search.
