SURREY - After four years as executive director of the Surrey Foundation, Kim Angel announced her resignation Wednesday. Her last day will be June 29.
Angel said she's been dedicated to the foundation during her tenure.
"I spent the last four years eating, sleeping, breathing and dreaming about the foundation," she said. She looks forward to focusing on other things she may have neglected during that time, like her family and her life.
She said shortly after she began work as executive director in 2008, the economy crashed, sending shockwaves through the charitable sector.
"Times were tough and, quite frankly, a little scary," she said.
But looking back, Angel is proud of the organization's accomplishments during her time there, such as the SurreyCares campaign, which raised awareness and funds to help organizations feeling the heaviest impact of the economic situation.
Angel is hopeful for the organization's future.
"It has potential, but it really needs community to back it. Back it by supporting the organization and supporting the future through endowments and legacy funds."
