Austin, TX, May 23, 2011 – Austin nonprofit Manos de Cristo unanimously elected Beverly Chasse, Chasse Consulting: Sales Strategies, Inc. founder and CEO, as its new board president at the organization’s monthly board meeting Monday night. Her appointment comes after spending the last three years working with the local charity that provides low-income families of Central Texas with access to free dental health clinics, a clothes closet, a food pantry, and assorted educational services.
Beverly Chasse was named board president of the Austin nonprofit Manos de Cristo on May 23, 2011.
“Manos de Cristo is an incredible advocate for the local impoverished,” said Chasse. “I am deeply humbled by this opportunity with a wholehearted thanks to the board for this investment in confidence, and I take the reins with a fully committed approach to advancing Manos de Cristo’s reach in the area and seeking newer ways through which we can have a positive impact.”
Chasse has been an active supporter of Manos’ charity efforts since 2008. Her company participates annually in its back-to-school events, and Chasse has held a seat on the Manos board for the last two and a half years, having served as the developmental chairwoman since early 2010. She currently spearheads the planning and production of the organization’s first-ever charity golf tournament, the Manos de Cristo Charity Golf Classic, which is to be held in September. Other plans in 2011 involve expanding the non-profit’s charitable initiatives and growing local involvement.
Outside of Manos de Cristo, Chasse also dedicates her time to supporting an assortment of other organizations including World Vision through the West Hills Presbyterian Church of Austin, DiscoverHope and Charity: Water, to which she’s donated funds for the construction of four freshwater wells in three Ethiopian villages and at a medical clinic. Community service has long been a priority for Chasse and is even a guiding principle of her consulting company’s vision statement. In fact, employees are encouraged annually to dedicate 10 percent of their skill or resources to a charitable event of their choosing, a company practice since 2002.
