“My dream has always been to work for a nonprofit. What excites me about working for the Community Foundation is the large impact they have on the community. They provide nonprofits with the resources and training to continue to fulfill their missions for years to come, which in turn builds up a stronger community.”– Sarah Knoch, CPA, Controller
Sarah Knoch, CPA, Controller, joined the Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne in October 2021. She is responsible for both internal and external financial reporting as well as maintaining internal controls, providing financial analysis, and overseeing daily financial activities.
Sarah has a bachelor’s degree in Accounting from Manchester College. Sarah spent nine years with The Seigel Group, LLC, a small public accounting firm in Auburn, IN before coming to the Community Foundation. While at the Seigel Group, she did a little bit of everything, including taxes, payroll, bookkeeping, and auditing. Most of the audit clients Sarah worked with were small, local nonprofit organizations. Working with them was her favorite part of the job. Sarah currently serves on the finance committee of Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum. She is also an assistant treasurer at her church.
Sarah is from Fort Wayne and now lives in Noble County. Outside of work she loves spending time with her horses, reading a good book, and playing games with family.
