About the Foundation

In 2015, Sunny Justice was hired to lead the Foundation as our Executive Director. Sunny joined the Foundation with nearly 20 years of non-profit experience, including fundraising and development. In 2021 the Board of Directors expanded Sunny’s role to Executive Director and Chief Development Officer.  This strategic shift enabled Sunny to use her fundraising experience to support our non-profit community.  Through the Paige Foundation she is teaching fundraising classes and offering one-on-one fundraising consulting free to our community.  Sunny’s specialty is helping charitably-minded individuals and organizations develop successful practices by building strong, impactful partnerships that combine philanthropic goals, with research and understanding of the non-profit sector.  Sunny is thrilled to be guiding the Foundation and enriching our communities.

Tim Schafer has been involved with the Foundation and guiding the organization since inception. He worked with Herbert and Judy Paige to create the Foundation as it exists today. Tim is a managing shareholder of Schafer Thomas Maez, P.C. and he serves as the Paige Family Foundation Board President.  The Foundation is pleased to have two other esteemed board members who have extensive backgrounds in healthcare, counseling, education and board service.  Dave Hamm, is the retired CEO of Good Samaritan Medical Center and Greg McDonald is the Assistant Principal of Casey Middle School.

The Herbert and Judy Paige Family Foundation was founded in June 2000 and we received our official 501(c)(3) exemption letter as a Private Family Foundation in 2007. Our Board members and staff live and work in Colorado. We focus our giving in California and Colorado.

The Paige Foundation has had a $5.035 million dollar impact on our nonprofit community since 2007.
