The Idaho Community Foundation has hired Catherine Smith to be its first fund development/donor relations officer in the Idaho Falls office. Smith served as marketing director for the Idaho Falls Arts Council for seven years and also worked with the Idaho Commission on the Arts as a regional public art advisor. In addition to marketing and public relations, she has a strong background in graphic design.

Her hobbies include watercolor painting and graphite drawing as well as outdoor activities with her family, especially in Swan Valley. Smith married her high school sweetheart after they finished college and they have two young boys.

“Being an Idaho girl, I can’t wait to visit the incredible communities in east and southeast Idaho that are rich in history and tradition,” she said. “I am excited to explore the organizations and people that are doing notable work in our region. Idaho is a treasure and I am honored to be able to continue the work of ICF in the region and across the state I truly love.”
