Tatiana Hernandez

Tatiana Hernandez is the Chief Executive Officer of the Community Foundation Boulder County, where she guides a dedicated team focused on increasing generosity and galvanizing resources to help build a more equitable Boulder County.

During her tenure, the foundation has led numerous disaster-related philanthropic efforts including responses to COVID, a mass shooting and multiple fires. The foundation is currently responsible for the largest philanthropic response to a natural disaster in Colorado history.

Prior to joining the foundation, Tatiana served as President of the Emily Griffith Foundation and was a Senior Program Officer at the Kresge Foundation. In Boulder, Tatiana served as Arts Director for the Hemera Foundation where—in partnership with the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation and Colorado Creative Industries—she developed Arts in Society, Colorado’s largest private-public funding program for the arts.

Prior to philanthropy, Tatiana worked in the nonprofit sector on issues ranging from college access to climate change. She has served on numerous boards and committees and currently serves on the board of Philanthropy Colorado.

Tatiana has received several awards throughout her career, including being named a “40 Under 40” honoree by the Denver Business Journal, a “Rising Star” by the Boulder Chamber of Commerce, and a “50 Most Influential Business Leader” by BizWest.

Originally from Miami and a native Spanish speaker, Tatiana is the daughter of Cuban and Colombian immigrants and a first-generation graduate of The George Washington University.

“Community colleges have the power to be launch pads for people seeking educational and economic mobility. As a former concurrent enrollment student, a first-generation university graduate, and the daughter of a mechanic, I know that having different pathways to fulfill one’s dreams matters. It is an honor to serve Colorado students as a member of the SBCCOE”
