Big News From Karla James

I’m excited to tell you that I’m moving forward to a new organization. Starting in April, you can reach me at the National Center for Youth Law, where I will be the Director of Finance and Operations. I’m thrilled to be working for such an amazing organization that uses the law to help children in need. If you don’t know about NCYL, check it out here:

2014 Film Festival KarlaI’m going to miss the Rose Foundation community. I cherish our wonderful staff and the deep relationships we have forged over the past 17 years. My journey through philanthropy with Rose Foundation has led me all over California. Every single day I’ve been inspired by our grantees who are so dedicated to making our communities and the environment better, cleaner, and healthier. I have learned so much, had amazing experiences, and made some wonderful life long friends. And I’m proud that at every step of the way, everyone here at Rose Foundation has shared my commitment to re-envisioning philanthropy from the perspective of grantees and applicants to try to make it work better for everyone.

I have really enjoyed working with you all over the past several years. Please keep up the terrific work that you are all doing.

All my best,

Karla James
Managing Director
