BFAIR Adds Fundraising & Grants Manager

NORTH ADAMS — BFAIR, a provider of adult family care, residential, in-home clinical services, employment, and day services for adults and children with developmental disabilities, acquired brain injury and autism, announced that Tara Jacobson has been named to the new position of Fundraising & Grants manager.

Jacobson recently relocated to Berkshire County after living in Seattle, Wash. for the past few years. In both her personal and professional life, she works to create systems and relationships that are based in empathy, accessibility, and fairness. She has been working in fundraising and community engagement for the past eight years.

What started as volunteering at a local nonprofit in Boston led to her passion of working in partnership with others who were also interested in making a difference in their community. Rich Weisenflue, BFAIR CEO said of Jacobson’s addition, “we are thrilled to welcome Tara to our dynamic team. With her considerable experience in community engagement it will be a pleasure to introduce Tara to businesses and residents who have so generously contributed to support BFAIR’s Mission”.
