Raquel Brown

Raquel Brown joined the Community Foundation in October of 2022 as Director of Development. Raquel earned bachelor’s degrees in banking & finance, business management, international business, and economics from Northwood University. Her previous work experience is in finance, most notably with Members First Credit Union. Raquel has a passion for volunteerism and community involvement. She has been active with Junior Achievement, Midland Young Professionals (MYPros), the Midland Business Alliance’s Ambassador program, Midland County ESA, Boy Scouts of America, and The Noon Exchange Club of Midland. Raquel has a passion for working in a collaborative environment where she can be a part of teams that provide an impact much greater than one individual can accomplish on their own.

Raquel’s favorite things to do in Midland County are attending the Antique Festival, enjoying local coffee shops, and boutique shopping.
