She originally came to GCF in 1978 as a volunteer, handpicked from Kroger by Jake Davis to assist him at meetings. As the Foundation and its needs grew, Mrs. McCoy won the confidence and gained the admiration of the volunteers.

After several years as a volunteer member of the staff and a year as part-time Assistant Director, Mrs. McCoy was appointed as the Foundation’s first full-time paid staff Executive Director in 1984. 

The annual report from that year promised “Her warmth, understanding and graciousness will represent the Foundation in fine style both to donors and grant seekers."

2013 marks GCF's 50th Anniversary. Learn how we are celebrating 50 Years of Greater Generosity.
