I have always had a passion for helping people and giving back. Working at the Community Foundation I am able to do just that by helping our donors with their charitable giving and by helping them I am able to see the impact that giving is currently making on our community. Seeing the generosity of others only fuels my passion to continuing giving back in my own life to our community.

Chasity enjoys interacting with donors and discovering the organizations and causes that are important to them. Prior to joining the HICF, Chasity worked at the Decatur Family YMCA for six years. In 2016, she was recognized for her dedication with the Y's outstanding customer service award. Chasity is completing her bachelor's degree in business through the University of Illinois-Springfield. She earned her Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy (CAP) through The American College of Financial Services. She currently serves as the board president for the Decatur Family YMCA and as the CFMC's National Standards accreditation coordinator. In 2023, the HICF was awarded re-accreditation with National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations, a rigorous and comprehensive process that is designed to provide quality assurance to donors, as well as to legal and financial advisors.
