Sandy has many roles from answering phones to greeting visitors to taking meeting minutes, accounts payables, and grants; she is a jack of all trades in the office.
Sandy’s favorite SCCF project was the large impact investments they undertook in local nonprofits like the Community Humane Society, because the foundation could identify and support nonprofits who were headed in a more self-sustaining direction.
In her free time, Sandy enjoys biking long distances and hiking. She has her Master Gardener’s certification, and she has taken handgun safety courses and hunting and fishing safety courses through the Sheriff’s Department and the DNR, respectively. She also works part time at the Angola City Police Dispatch.
Sandy enjoys spending time with her four children and fifteen grandchildren. Traveling to see her family has taken Sandy to some exciting places, including a trip to see the Christmas markets in Germany when she visited her son.
Sandy’s favorite part about living in Steuben County is the small town atmosphere, where people are friendly and you can enjoy plenty of space and fresh air.
You can contact Sandy by calling 260-665-6656 or emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also stop by the foundation during office hours - visitors are always welcome!
“The best part of working at the foundation is the people who come here. They’re happy to be here, and happy to talk to you.”
Sandy Ferrell has been answering questions and making sure that things run smoothly at SCCF for 13 years now. She grew up on a farm near Pleasant Lake and attended Angola High School. Before becoming office manager at SCCF, Sandy worked for the county government. The experience she gained there is useful in her current role at the foundation, where she helps make sure we do everything according to the rules, always remain ethical, and do our best to help the nonprofits and donors who depend on us.
