Lynnette excels at building relationships with multiple stakeholders, and our board looks forward to working with Lynnette as we chart the future for the CDCF.”

Lynnette Wray said, “I have followed the development of the Cranbrook and District Community Foundation since its early years, and it’s a true pleasure to join the CDCF in the role of Executive Director. I look forward to working with the CDCF Board of Directors, members, endowment holders, donors, and community partners, building on the CDCF’s many successes and seeking new opportunities to grow and develop.
