Before joining the Nord Family Foundation as their Executive Director, John thought he needed to traverse the world in order to change it. That is, until a mentor helped him see how it was possible to use “money, power, and can do” to strengthen communities closer to home. Today, the work of this family foundation re-imagines the scope and compass of the world.

“I work with a great board who embraced that sense of we’re the Nord Family Foundation, but our family is the greater community that we serve.” – John Mullaney, Executive Director, Nord Family Foundation
