10 Years of Service and Leadership

NBA Mark D. Anderson Fund

As the NBA, we celebrate and honor 10 years of service and leadership of our President and CEO, Mark D. Anderson!  To celebrate his tenure, the NBA Mark D. Anderson Fund has been established in partnership with the Christian Church Foundation. We are grateful for all that has taken place under Mark’s leadership.

Since 2011, Mark has helped to oversee and encourage the establishment of new NBA programs, strengthened the overall organization, developed strong leadership with the NBA Board of Trustees, recruited new donors to the ministry, and enhanced connections with longtime supporters of the NBA. While he credits his years of executive nonprofit leadership experience and management skills, Mark is always quick to claim that he “stands on the shoulders of giants” and the faithful saints that have inspired him along the way. In particular, Mark names the active advocacy, faithful generosity, joy and humor of his beloved parents, Marilyn “Jeanne” Anderson and Herold “Andy” Davis Anderson, Jr.

About the NBA Mark D. Anderson Fund

We invite you to commemorate this milestone for both NBA and for Mark with a gift to the newly established, NBA Mark D. Anderson Fund. The earnings from this named fund will support the overall mission and ministry of the NBA, inclusive of our work accompanying social entrepreneurs, building innovative faith-rooted social enterprises, leadership development and vocational discernment with young adults, and offering meaningful support to established nonprofits such as coaching, executive search consulting, accounting, and peer learning groups.

Thank you for your generous support!

Make your gift to the NBA Mark D. Anderson Fund!
