Sue Tacke has a lengthy background in accounting for nonprofit entities. She spent twelve years as a Staff Accountant at the Monastery of St. Gertrude priding herself on her diligence to her duties. This work experience gives her a thorough understanding of development as it pertains to visibility, friend raising and fund raising.
Sue and her husband Cliff were volunteer board members of Cottonwood Butte Ski Area, a nonprofit corporation. They, along with the other volunteer board members, rebuilt the lift on a shoestring budget. They invested many, many hours over their twelve year tenure ensuring the t-bar ski lift would remain operational for the families of the Cottonwood community.
Although Sue has not yet visited Mthatha, it is on her wish list. She looks forward to one day making art with the children Sister Mary Paulé spent her life loving, honoring and educating. Sues is very sympathetic to the plight of children, saying “It affects me to the core of my being.”
