SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (January 17, 2024) – St. Anthony Foundation, committed to providing pathways to stability for thousands of San Franciscans in need annually, announces the appointment of Maija Muncy as the foundation’s new Chair of the Board of Directors.
Muncy, who has been a member of the board since September 2018, previously served as the secretary officer and chair of the Development Committee. She served as vice chair since October 2023. Now as the board’s new chair, she will preside over all board and executive committee meetings and oversee key leadership responsibilities, most notably continuing the foundation’s search for a new permanent CEO.
“Maija has been a guiding light at St. Anthony’s with her experience and insight. Now as our new chair, she will help guide the foundation during an important time for our organization and the city,” said Bryan Young, Interim CEO of St. Anthony Foundation. “She embodies our values every day, and she’s a strong advocate for our services and their impact on the community.”
Members of the Board of Directors serve three-year terms with the possibility for extensions, limited to no more than three terms, for good cause based on approval by Franciscan Ministries, St. Anthony’s trustees. Following the completion of his term as chair of the board, Tim Dunn is now named Emeritus Chair, remaining involved with the foundation.
Originally introduced to St. Anthony’s as a corporate volunteer in the Dining Room, Muncy is the Chief of Staff at a financial technology company based in Oakland, CA, following a tenure in the bio-pharma industry. Muncy is also currently the Chair of the Board of Trustees at Drew School, a private, independent college-preparatory high school in San Francisco, and previously served as the Board Chair of the San Francisco Education Fund and was an inaugural leader of the Monsoon Group at the Asian Art Museum.
“St. Anthony’s has always had a special place in my heart,” said Muncy. “As chair, I’m eager to continue our tremendous work in 2024 and beyond. The foundation changes lives, and our work gives people hope and opens doors to whatever path they choose toward a more flourishing life.”
Raised in Asia, Muncy currently resides in San Francisco with her family, including her two sons, 17 and 21. Together, they are regular volunteers in St. Anthony’s Dining Room. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, hiking, and along with her sons, exploring the Bay Area for the best dumplings and pizza.
