Keeping On, Keeping Strong

Our Dear Friends, Partners, Colleagues, Supporters, and Believers,

The Carson J. Spencer Foundation is doing some staff reorganization, our marketplace and clients are changing and growing and we want to be sure that we service this community in the most effective and efficient manner.  We will be making changes to our program lineup so that we may sharpen our focus on those that provide the most impact.

Our CEO and Co-Founder, Sally Spencer-Thomas, has decided to expand her influence in a different direction and will be concentrating on speaking and evangelizing suicide prevention on a national and international basis.  To accomplish this goal, she has decided to leave the Foundation in the good hands of the Staff and Board of Directors.

We are excited at this opportunity to step back and take a serious look at the needs of our marketplace and provide the appropriate programs. We ask your patience as we navigate through this transition, we very much appreciate your past and future support of our organization and cause. We are happy to answer any questions you may have. You may contact Chris Habgood ( for partnership opportunities, Heidi Lightenburger ( for program delivery and information on workplace suicide prevention and postvention, and Emily Alvarez ( for administrative and operations questions. As always, our Board of Directors can be reached at
