As their Treasurer and a founding member of the El Buen Pastor Latino Community Services’ Board of Directors, Nancy Colvin (left) set up their bookkeeping system and has managed their tax filings, banking, and payroll since 2007. An enrolled agent specializing in preparing taxes for international individuals, Nancy used her expertise to lead the board to establish financial management practices with the transparency and high standards that are required to maintain 501(c)(3) status as a nonprofit, and she continues to keep them in compliance with state and federal filing and reporting requirements.
“Nancy has been on-call for us seven days a week with a cheerful and positive attitude”, says Executive Director Mary Bolton, who estimates that Nancy volunteers more than 300 hours a year, and has served in excess of 2,000 hours with El Buen Pastor LCS over the years.
In addition to the contribution of her professional skill, Nancy is an exemplary member of the Board of Directors, setting a high standard for Board leadership and giving her time to fund-raising activities, attending community events, and tutoring with their after school program (she can do the math!).
Board Chair Rosa Miranda says, “God knew we would not be able to come this far as an organization without Nancy’s gifts, talents and passion to serve with love and intelligence.” In 2013, Nancy was honored with the Service to Mankind Award by the Winston-Salem Sertoma Club and went on to be recognized at the district level as well.
