The Burlingame Community for Education Foundation recently announced the appointment of its Executive Director, Andrea Capozzoli. She joins the BCE with more than 20 years of management and fundraising experience.
“I am thrilled to partner with parents, other community members and BCE’s leadership as we work together to further strengthen Burlingame’s K-8 educational programs,” Capozzoli said in a statement.
She has previously developed fundraising programs for Bay Area educational institutions such as University of San Francisco, Stanford University, Edgewood Center for Children and Families, Woodside Priory, Mills College, Windmill Preschool, Menlo College and Aragon High School.
“Andrea’s skills, experience and leadership will enable us to increase our fundraising to benefit the students of the Burlingame School District,” said BCE President Jennifer Slaboda in a statement. “We are delighted to have her as part of our team.
Slaboda said that BCE’s growth and development have led to the requirement of professional staff to help manage the organization.
Burlingame resident Capozzoli has worked with several non-profit boards on strategic planning. She has worked with parents, volunteers, boards and communities to attract donors.
“BCE is committed to enhancing every student’s education in the Burlingame School District, and plans to raise over $1.3 million this year to ‘fund the gap’ in our current state funding,” said BSD Superintendent Dr. Maggie MacIsaac in a statement. “With BCE’s appointment of Andre as Executive Director, I have confidence they will accomplish this goal.”
