The STAHS Board has contracted with Stephen Reichard as the Capital Campaign Director.
Since 2011, STAHS (Siletz Tribal Arts and Heritage Society) has existed as a small volunteer board with one goal in mind – to build the Siletz Cultural Center “A Place for the People,” to be located on Government Hill in Siletz. Starting from ground zero in 2011 with no funds, the board has worked tirelessly to accomplish that goal. The shovel ready architectural plans are complete and now fully paid for.
Funds have been raised, partly from the generosity of the Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund as well as donations from individuals with merchandise sales increasing in 2019. However, much more is needed for the project to go forward. It became apparent that someone with the correct contacts and more expertise was needed to assist STAHS in raising the needed funds. To that end, Stephen Reichard has been hired to fill the position of Capital Campaign Director. He comes to us with a full résumé of accomplishments and 30 years of experience.
Reichard’s qualifications include proven results in strategic planning and organizational development, research and writing, funds development and revenue enhancement, marketing and financial analysis. He also has worked in Indian Country. His credits include work as Northwest Area Vice President for Option Care Inc., President and Co-Founder of RehabLogic Inc., Executive Director of the Inland Neuroscience & Spine Center, interim Executive Director of Cancer Care Northwest and Chief Operating Officer with Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette in Portland, Oregon. He served as Deputy Director of the Lambi Fund of Haiti, an NGO (nongovernmental organization) indigenous to Haiti. Stephen most recently served as Executive Director of the ReBuilding Center, Portland’s iconic salvage building materials organization. A graduate of Columbia University in New York City, Stephen was a fellow in African and Latin American history at Northwestern University, where he earned his master’s degree in 1984. He has completed much of the work for a master’s in health policy and administration from Washington State University.
He is the recent recipient of the 2017 Golden Compass Award from the Building Materials Reuse Association for his work promoting equity in the building materials reuse industry.
