CCF Leadership Update: Anne Merkel has taken over the helm as Chair of Chelsea Community Foundation. She is very engaged, knowledgeable, and committed to Chelsea. “The thing that I love most about CCF is that when people donate, their funds go directly to our whole community. Donations are spread out over many grant applicants, so if you like to donate to both the library and FIA, your donation will ultimately support those nonprofits.
