The Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley didn’t have to look far for its next president and CEO, naming its vice president of philanthropy, Sally Cross, to the position after a national search. She will begin on June 1.

Cross has the vice president of philanthropy for the past six years at the 50-year old foundation, which manages and dispenses grants in Dutchess, Putnam and Ulster counties.

Cross was previously executive director of the SUNY New Paltz Foundation. She succeeds March Gallagher, who left in 2019 to run for Ulster County comptroller.
