Executive Director Lori Daniels stands at The Church Foundation (TCF) 's helm, reporting to the Board of Directors. She oversees and monitors investments to ensure financial integrity and serves the Board in its fiduciary duties as trustee and custodian for assets owned by churches, chapels, missions, and institutions in the Diocese of Pennsylvania.

Lori joined TCF in 2014 as Operations Specialist, transitioning to Operations Manager. She was promoted to Executive Director in 2019 due to her leadership talents, positive business relationships, and a solid vision for TCF's future.

Our newest member is Lisa Reinhardt, Operations Manager, working closely with our Executive Director to facilitate daily operations. Bringing administrative and organizational talents, Lisa was with the Diocese of Pennsylvania for over 12 years, coming to us from St. James’ Episcopal Church in Collegeville where she served as Director of Parish Operations and Communications.
Lisa’s experience includes co-developing practices that standardize and streamline workflow. She also created an online presence for St. James’ to communicate with parishioners, now a lifeline for remote parishioners. She plans to help create both of these for TCF including periodic newsletters to strengthen relationships with parishioners.
With a flair for graphic design blended with communication skills, Lisa assisted the rector at St. James’ to rebrand and standardize colors, styles, and logos for all ministries used in print, website, social media, and mass emails. She developed a comprehensive manual for all media use now adopted by several other parishes. She hopes to develop a similar standard for TCF.
Aware of the financial stability of a healthy church, Lisa looks forward to learning more. She will strive to achieve over 90% of churches partnering and investing with TCF, while in turn offering each partner valuable assistance in daily procedures, growth, stability and longevity.
Communication is pivotal to a good partnership. Lisa holds a B.S. in Communication Studies and truly values everyone she encounters. She loves to spend quality time with her family and host events for friends. Her favorite summer tradition is traveling with her three daughters to Sea Isle City, New Jersey.
