Spur Community Foundation Announces New Board Chair
Thursday, November 4, 2021


Carol Nie has succeeded Tim Wolff as president of the Spur Community Foundation’s board of directors.

Wolff, a founder of the organization, will remain an involved member of the board, leading its Development Committee and heading up the organization’s efforts to address the local workforce housing shortage.

Nie has been a member of Spur’s board of directors since 2016 and is chairwoman of the foundation’s Grants Committee, which handles the organization’s discretionary granting decisions.

She served as board chair of the Sun Valley Music Festival for eight years, founded the Festival Music Institute and was instrumental in the development of the Sun Valley Pavilion. Each year an Outstanding  Music Student Award is given in her name.

She also was one of the initial members of the Wood River Women’s Foundation.

She is currently a board member of Opera Idaho, an advisory board member of the Sun Valley Museum of Art and a board member of the Idaho Chapter of the International Women’s Forum.

“I am honored to lead this amazing organization, which in only five years has had a significant impact on the progress, capacity, and effectiveness of our not-for-profit community in the Wood River Valley,” said Nie, who received her undergraduate degree from Washington University in St. Louis and her M.B.A. from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.

“Spur has significantly increased inspired philanthropy from full-time and part-time donors in our valley. Its ability to be nimble in responding to crises facing our community, such as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the lack of affordable and workforce housing, is and will continue to be of great and increasing value to the valley,” she added.

Wolff said he can’t wait to see what the next chapter holds, following his decision to step down as board chair: “With her leadership experience, deep ties to the community and passion for philanthropy, Carol is an incredible asset to this organization and to this valley.”
