Foundation adds second employee

The Eden Prairie Community Foundation is pleased to announce that Prafulla Vegunta has been hired as the organization’s part-time administrative assistant and events coordinator.

Prafulla Vegunta

Vegunta, who began Oct. 11, will work 15 hours per week on a flexible schedule and handle many administrative and event-planning tasks, allowing Executive Director Mark Weber to spend more time on fundraising, development, and donor relations.

No stranger to Eden Prairie and the Foundation, Vegunta has lived in EP for 12 years and has served as a member of the Foundation’s Grants Committee, which reviews and scores applications for direct grants. His other, previous nonprofit work has been with the International Village Clinic and VIBHA, both of which serve causes in his native India.

He has also served as a board member and president of Eden Prairie A.M. Rotary.

Funding this position is another big step for the Foundation and reflective of its ongoing growth. The organization hired its first, part-time executive director in 2011, expanded that position to full-time in 2013, and now has hired a second employee.

Since 2013, Foundation assets have grown from $421,000 to $1.75 million.

“This is a big investment in the Foundation’s future on the part of the board of directors,” said Weber, “and it will ultimately allow us to meet our goal of making a bigger impact in Eden Prairie.

“We welcome Prafulla, and look forward to his help in making this growth happen.”
