Associate Program Officer, Arts & Culture
Chey Kuzma began her work at Oregon Community Foundation in 2014 in the Philanthropic Services Department, and has since moved into a role that taps into her performing arts background, supporting thriving and accessible arts communities across Oregon via OCF’s Arts and Culture portfolio. As an enrolled member of the Gitxsan Nation, Chey brings a background in working with Indigenous communities as well as public policy experience to her role. She is thrilled to be back in a role that allows her to connect with the vibrant arts and cultures of Oregon and continues to look for opportunities to jump back into the performing arts scene (onstage, preferably) in Portland someday.
