Jennifer Jones named new Blue River Community Foundation Executive Director

Blue River Community Foundation (BRCF) is proud to announce Jennifer Jones as our new Executive Director.


Jennifer previously held the position of Program Officer at BRCF for two years after serving for 15 years with the City of Shelbyville. Jennifer’s connections to the community, passion for our mission, and philanthropic experience will continue to move the Foundation forward as we serve Shelby County.


Jennifer is a Shelby County native and graduate of Waldron High School and Indiana Wesleyan University. She and her husband, Matt, reside in Shelbyville where they are raising their four children.



“I am honored to have the opportunity to continue serving BRCF and our community as the new Executive Director. My time as Program Officer with the organization has been extremely rewarding and I am beyond excited to continue our mission in this new role. Community service has been my passion since I started my career with the City of Shelbyville in 2003. Continuing to make Shelby County the best that it can be will always be my motivation and there’s no better place to make that happen than at Blue River Community Foundation. I truly love our community. I was born and raised in Shelbyville, my husband and I are raising our children here, and we hope that they someday return to Shelby County when they are ready to raise a family of their own. In the meantime, I will continue working hard through my work at the Foundation to make Shelby County the best version of itself that it can be for my family and for all that choose to call Shelby County home. “
