“The Sierra Fund is emerging from the COVID pandemic strong and ready to serve as the state’s leading advocate to restore resilience to the ecosystems and communities of the Sierra Nevada for the next 20 years,” said Martin in a press release. “Our programs and financial prospects are solid — with things going so well, now is the perfect time to make the transition to a new leader.”

Under Martin’s leadership as CEO, The Sierra Fund has implemented pilot projects on the ground to identify best management practices and protocols to rebuild the Sierra and lead successful legislative campaigns to bring new resources to the Sierra Nevada. Filling her shoes will take some effort, but the nonprofit is optimistic about finding the perfect fit.

“We believe that this is an incredible opportunity for a new leader that wants to build upon the very substantial platform that The Sierra Fund has assembled,” said Board Chair Adrienne Alvord.  “We are looking for someone with a history of inclusive leadership. Someone brave, entrepreneurial, and experienced in nonprofit organization management who is inspired by our mission.”
