Beverly White-Seals

Beverly joined the Community Foundation as President and CEO in May 2012, bringing broad experience in the public, private, and philanthropic sectors. She positioned the organization as a hub for connecting philanthropic residents with local nonprofits to improve the lives of those living in Howard County, while also building a new leadership team and investing in better processes and systems. 

Born and raised in Washington, DC, Beverly earned a B.A. from Ohio Wesleyan University and a J.D. from Columbia University School of Law. Beverly also donated her time and talent to serve on over 30 nonprofit boards while pursuing a career as a practicing attorney. Beverly enjoys spending time with her husband, daughter, son-in-law and grandson as well as with her large and exceedingly close extended family. 

Beverly’s favorite thing about Howard County is that there is no one great thing: “Over the past 40 years I raised children here in Howard County and had 2 significant career opportunities within minutes of my home — all while living in a diverse, highly educated and tolerant community with an intentionally green environment.”
