Greenwich residents Kerrith Mackay, Kristen Rosenbaum, and Jennifer Servedio all recently joined the board of Impact Fairfield County (Impact FFC), the area’s premiere women’s giving circle.
Mackay will serve as co-chair of communications, Rosenbaum as co-chair of grants, and Servedio as co-chair of events for Impact FFC’s board of directors.
Impact FFC has invested more than $1.25M in local nonprofits since its inception six years ago.
Kerrith Mackay is a strategic marketing specialist with over 12 years of financial services marketing experience across both London and South Africa.
She has also chaired various committees at Greenwich Country Day School and co-chaired the Greenwich Land Trust “Evening at the Farmstead” event in both 2020 and 2021.
“Joining Impact has been an incredibly rewarding experience! Being a member offers a truly unique opportunity to learn new skills, use your existing skills, and learn about the Fairfield County nonprofit sector, all in the company of bright and engaged women who are focused on lifting up their community,” Mackay said in a release.
Kristen Rosenbaum is currently partner in an early-stage private equity group, an active alumna fundraiser for her alma mater, Dartmouth, and a former Board member of the Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich. Previously, she spent over a decade in M&A and private equity across New York and London. She says joining Impact FFC “has brought so much joy into my life – I’ve learned about the incredible nonprofits serving our neighborhoods and met amazing like-minded women who want to give back to our community.”
Jennifer Servedio currently serves on the Parent Board at Greenwich Country Day School and sits on the Mission Advancement Committee of her high school alma mater, Notre Dame Academy.
Previously, Servedio was President of the Parent Association at The Stanwich School.
Servedio’s career experience includes event planning, grant writing, and non-profit management training.
“I joined Impact because I find the model and mission super compelling, and I was excited by the opportunity to maximize my contribution to nonprofit organizations in Fairfield County,” Servedio said in a release. “In addition, collective giving not only allows me to contribute beyond my individual means, but also to support and get to know so much about the work of numerous incredible organizations in this area. And finally, I was excited to meet and work together with smart and talented women in my community.”
Impact FFC unites women by together providing large, transformational grants to local nonprofits. Each member contributes $1,000 and has an equal vote for who receives the grants. With 248 members this year, its largest membership to date, Impact FFC was able to distribute $248,000 into the nonprofit community.
This year’s Impact FFC $100,000 grant winners were Hall Neighborhood House of Bridgeport and INTEMPO of Stamford. Hall Neighborhood House will use the grant to fund an on-site dental clinic as part of their comprehensive programming to address the physical and mental health needs of residents of the East Side neighborhood. INTEMPO will use the grant to engage 225 English Language Learners at three Stamford Public Schools through a music curriculum that will help them learn English and acclimate to their new school environment.
