The Princeton Area Community Foundation has appointed two new members to its board of trustees.
Ewing resident Ana Berdecia and Hopewell resident Andrew Lieu will serve three-year terms on the board.
Berdecia is the director of the Center for the Positive Development of Urban Children at the John S. Watson Institute for Public Policy at Thomas Edison State University. She previously served as the executive director for the Puerto Rican Community Day Care Center Inc. in Trenton. She serves on the boards of Professional Impact New Jersey and the New Jersey Council for Young Children.
Lieu is a principal at Roundview Capital, a family office investment advisory firm in Princeton. He previously worked as a financial analyst at Citigroup. He has volunteered on the Community Foundation’s Grants and Programs Committee since 2012. He also served on the board of trustees of the Manna Christian Fellowship at Princeton University for nine years.
“We are so pleased to welcome Ana and Andrew to the Community Foundation,” said Carol Herring, chair of the Community Foundation Board of Trustees. “Ana has been recognized throughout the state for her work in early childhood education and Andrew has extensive financial expertise.”
As part of a new strategic plan, the Community Foundation will focus its own grantmaking on the issue of child poverty while continuing to support donors, helping those donors make meaningful gifts to the causes that are important to the donors.
“The expertise that Ana and Andrew will contribute makes our Board stronger and allows us to make even more progress with our newly adopted strategic plan,” said Jeffrey Vega, President and CEO of the Community Foundation.
