Jennifer “Jen” Pendleton is a self-described board governance “nerd” who believes sound leadership and strong organizational culture are keys to nonprofit success. She’s also driven to help these leaders identify their nonprofits’ unique qualities and roles in the community, with the goals of making nonprofit magic happen and bringing vibrant visions to life.
Before coming to ASP, Jen served as president and CEO of the Community Foundation of Boone County (Indiana), where she led a campaign to raise $1 million in matching funds from the Lilly Endowment for the county’s Community Impact Fund.
Prior to Boone County, Jen served as executive director of Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation, a $30 million national education foundation in Indianapolis. There she worked with board and staff to successfully launch the organization’s first major campaign in decades. She spent 10 years at Riley Children’s Foundation, also in Indianapolis, in a variety of roles including major gift officer and director of the hospital’s Miracle Network Telethon and events department.
Jen is an avid volunteer who shares her time and expertise freely with a variety of nonprofits. Her formal recent roles include president of the North-American Interfraternity Conference Foundation, board member and vice-chair of the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors Foundation and hands-on volunteer with the Humane Society of Indianapolis, helping socialize and train hard-to-adopt dogs.

“As a community volunteer and donor, I’ve appreciated Aly’s ability to strategically organize and facilitate our fundraising efforts, all while keeping a great sense of enthusiasm and spirit in all that she does.”
