It was announced last week Lynn Bohart will retire March 30 after 12 years as executive director of the Renton Community Foundation.

Bohart spent more than 25 years as a hospital foundation executive and member of the hospital executive team, according to a press release. She was hired with the foundation in 2006 as the first executive to lead the group. Back then, the foundation was a volunteer-led organization with approximately $2.5 million in assets.

“She has also found ways to make our fund advisors and donors feel like they’re part of a family,” said Rich Wagner, board president, in the release. “And it’s this family of donors who give back to the community they love. For this and all of Lynn’s contributions, we are eternally grateful.”

“My greatest joy is awarding the grants that can change people’s lives,” Bohard said. “But my biggest accomplishment is bringing the foundation to the point of regional status. I believe this will be a good move for the foundation and a great move for Renton.”

Bohart’s replacement, LeAnne Moss is set to take over April 2.

Bohart said Moss has more than 20 years experience with nonprofit leadership.
