Meet the Staff: Hannah Rosenblume

Hannah Rosenblume joined Community Foundation Boulder County four years ago and serves as our Executive Coordinator. When she's not coordinating board gatherings and staff meetings, supporting the work of the Boulder County Wildfire Fund, or, perhaps most impressively, managing our CEO Tatiana Hernandez's busy calendar, Hannah is always there to help a team member. Hannah is the heartbeat of the community foundation and we're so grateful to have her on board! Learn more about Hannah, her community foundation journey, and what she likes most about supporting the mission of the foundation.

 

Can you start by telling us about yourself?  

 
I am originally from east central Illinois and moved to Colorado in 2017. A music teacher by training, I spent my first years in Colorado working in Denver Public Schools as a kindergarten through second grade music teacher. I joined the foundation as a temporary worker in January of 2020, and joined the staff permanently in April 2020. I am so grateful I was able to get a job in the throes of the pandemic. Since starting at CBFC, I’ve done many different things – office management, executive assisting, board management, and disaster funds. Currently, I work closely with Tatiana on the Wildfire Fund and as her assistant.  
 
In my spare time, my husband and I are avid board gamers. We can usually be found at friends’ tables on a Saturday night. I also love to cook and bake, read, and play video games. We have two cats, Melody and Taro, and one dog, Bonnie. Bonnie is the unofficial Chief Cuteness Officer for the foundation.  
 

Why the community foundation?  

 
I started working at CFBC by chance! When I left teaching in 2019, I knew I wanted to continue doing mission-based work. I was having a hard time finding permanent employment, so I signed up at Robert Half to be assigned temporary work. They knew I wanted to work at a nonprofit and they placed me with CFBC.  
 
Community Foundation Boulder County has been a great place for me to learn about Boulder County, nonprofits, and philanthropy. I’ve stayed for four years because I love the team I work with, and I’ve learned so much. It means so much to me to be part of a team that is committed to making Boulder County a more equitable place.  
 

What excites you about your work as the foundation’s Executive Coordinator? 

 
I like being able to support our team behind the scenes while they do their work in the community. I also enjoy keeping things organized and making sure our staff and board are prepared for events  
 
I also love working with Tatiana! It’s been a blast over the past four years. I’ve learned so much about nonprofits and philanthropy from her. I am so lucky to have an amazing boss and mentor in her.    
 

Which of our values most resonates with you and why?  

 
Humanity! People are any organization’s most valuable resource, and we have a great group of people at CFBC. We care about each other – sharing our wins when we succeed and asking for help when we need it.  
 

Any favorite community foundation memories you’d like to share? 

 
I’m that person who can never think of a single memory. I enjoy the everyday little things – Like laughing over coffee in the kitchen or taking a walk with a co-worker. I appreciate these simple acts of connection.  
 

What’s your favorite activity in Boulder County? 

 
I love to walk up and down Pearl Street – people watching and window shopping. My husband and I frequent restaurants across Boulder County. We recently ate at Community Supper Club in Lafayette and it was amazing!
