Staff Spotlight: Joyce Minkoff, Development Manager

The Foundation is thrilled to highlight our Development Manager, Joyce Minkoff.   

As the Development Manager, Joyce is responsible for coordinating the Foundation’s events. Specifically, our two major fundraisers: the Spring Inspiration Breakfast and Community Leadership Reception. For both events, Joyce handles all aspects of planning and execution including sponsorship, venue coordination, marketing development, and day-of-event coordination.  

“Over the past two years, I have learned so much about the inspiring nonprofits and volunteers who work to make our community a better place for everyone. I love that I get to work and live in MetroWest, and I work with the nicest people!” Joyce says. 

“Joyce’s work is integral to not only helping us fund foundation initiatives but bringing people together to create a stronger and more vibrant MetroWest,” says Jay Kim, Community Foundation MetroWest Executive Director.  

Joyce also supports PALC events, YIP events, our annual donor event, and other Development activities.   

Prior to her role at the Foundation, Joyce served as the Marketing Manager at New Balance Athletic Shoe and led the team responsible for sponsorships and events. She also co-founded the Komen Boston Race for the Cure and established the local Komen Foundation Massachusetts affiliate, and was a volunteer for the Boston Marathon organizers, assisting with the pasta and post-race parties.  

Joyce lives in Sudbury with her two children, her son Ethan, who recently graduated from Brown University, and her daughter Lily, a recent graduate of Lincoln-Sudbury High School.   

Joyce has been actively involved with Sudbury schools, serving as PTO co-chair. She also served as President of the Jean Lind Teen Center and as the sponsorship chair for HOPEsudbury.  

When she’s not working or volunteering, Joyce is busy enjoying lots of outdoor activities, going to the theater, travelling, and trying new restaurants.
