ABAG’s Nelson to retire in December

Betsy Nelson, who has served as president of the Association of Baltimore Area Grantmakers since 1990, said she will step down from the post in December. The organization, founded in 1983, has grown under Nelson’s tenure to more than 135 private and community foundations, donor-advised funds and corporations with strategic grantmaking programs, representing the majority of institutional givers in the Baltimore area.

Nelson, who writes a monthly column for The Daily Record, called her decision to leave the ABAG leadership post “challenging.” She said she decided “to explore a new phase of life and spend more time with my family.”
