Jason spent more than two decades with mission-driven organizations in the U.S. and around the world before returning to Bozeman in 2012 to serve as Vice President of External Relations for MSU's Alumni Foundation. During that time, he led global corporate communications for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) in Geneva, Switzerland, following a stint in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, running communications and humanitarian diplomacy programs in their Asia Pacific zone.

Jason is a graduate of the DiploFoundation's International Humanitarian Diplomacy program and has degrees in political science and English from Montana State University. He serves on the boards of the Bozeman Sunrise Rotary Club and Iqra Fund, a Bozeman-based international nonprofit organization that provides educational opportunities for girls in Pakistan.

Prior to working at the Foundation, Mindy worked in the Conference and Event Services Department at Montana State University and has extensive experience in the customer service and planning industry. Originally from Pennsylvania, Mindy attended Westminster College in New Wilmington, PA, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Public Relations.

In her new role, she is charged with managing the foundation’s annual Hospitality Auction, organizing other foundation events throughout the year, creating the foundation’s publications including Dividends, and helping ensure our donors experience our gratitude and realize the impact of their generosity.
