Big Brothers Big Sisters of Dane County CEO to resign

The CEO of the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Dane County announced Monday that she will be resigning from the organization.

Dora Zuniga has been with the organization for 10 years, according to a release.

Zuniga worked with the organization’s board to focus on fundraising and modernize operations, officials said. She has served on several national and regional Big Brothers Big Sisters leadership committees.

“It has been a privilege to serve Big Brothers Big Sisters and, by extension, at-risk youth in Dane County over the past 10 years,” Zuniga said. “We have made great progress in working to break the cycle of poverty one child at a time. At the same time, I am looking forward to tackling new opportunities.”

The board of directors will immediately start looking for a new executive director, according to the release.

“We will miss Dora’s passion and dedication,” said Jeff Bernstein, president of the BBBS Dane County Board of Directors. “But, as we look for new leadership, our talented staff and amazing volunteers will continue to deliver one-on-one mentoring proven to help our kids thrive.”
