Celebrating Their Contributions to Peace


Two longtime Stanley Foundation staff members, Jill Goldesberry and Dana Pittman, are retiring this spring.

Jill Goldesberry, program officer for community partnerships, joined the foundation in 1984 and served in several positions over her 35 years. Her greatest contribution has been planning regional activities that enhance knowledge of global citizenship and cultures for young people and assisting educators in teaching global awareness in the Muscatine, Iowa, school district.

Dana Pittman, director of finance and corporate treasurer, joined the foundation in 1993. In addition to overseeing investments, accounting, human resources, and other administrative functions, he has been a valued member of the foundation’s leadership team.

Keith Porter, president of the Stanley Foundation, expressed his gratitude to Goldesberry and Pittman for their service to the foundation.

“It is hard for me to imagine the Stanley Foundation without Dana and Jill,” Porter said. “They have been such amazing fixtures in our work. Through their efforts, the foundation has made great strides toward fulfilling its mission. Each in their own way, Dana and Jill have impacted lives and set the foundation on a positive course.”
