Celebrating Community As Family: An Interview with John Mullaney, Director Emeritus of the Nord Family Foundation

NCFP celebrated its 20th anniversary by sharing videos of unique stories from those in our network. In this video, John Mullaney, director emeritus of the Nord Family Foundation, shares how a mentor helped him see how it was possible to use “money, power, and can do” to strengthen communities close to home.

Before joining the Nord Family Foundation as their (former) Executive Director, John thought he needed to traverse the world in order to change it. Today, the work of this family foundation re-imagines the scope and compass of the world.

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