Foundation welcomes Frick to advisory board


The Foundation for the Future of Delaware County is pleased to welcome Manchester resident Julie Frick to its advisory board. 

Lisa Guetzko has retired from the board after two remarkable terms of service, during which she helped shape the Foundation’s pandemic response and forged impactful connections that will benefit youth in Delaware County for years to come. Guetzko continues to mentor Frick as she passes the baton. 

Frick has been engaged in the Foundation’s Manchester Vitality fundraising effort since it began in 2022 and is excited to have been asked to join the Foundation board.  

Frick has extensive experience planning projects and delivering results, skills that will serve her well in her Foundation board role, which includes overseeing community initiatives and inspiring philanthropy.This background and other volunteer work I have supported over the years have all led me to this wonderful opportunity,” she says. 

Frick has lived the majority of her life in Manchester but also spent several years in Milwaukee and Minneapolis. She and her husband, Tom, have been married for almost 38 years and have three adult sons and two dogs. She enjoys cooking for the family, fishing with Tom, golfing with the boys and friends, gardening, reading and crafts.

“There is so much to learn, and so many lives have been bettered over the years by the Foundation,” Frick says. “I am humbled to be a part of this board. I can't wait to see what our future holds.”

“Julie is a dedicated community leader with a good understanding of wide-ranging community challenges and opportunities,” says Amanda Diers, executive director. “We are thrilled to welcome her and leverage her skills in our efforts to improve quality of life in Delaware County.”

The Foundation offers many opportunities to improve quality of life by addressing an array of local issues. To learn more about how you can establish a fund or make a gift that impacts your community, contact Diers at 563-880-3816
