Football coach Sonny Lubbick and Bishop James Conley become new Catholic Foundation board members

.- Colorado State University football coach Sonny Lubbick and Bishop James D. Conley, the new auxiliary bishop for the Archdiocese of Denver, have joined the board of the Catholic Foundation along with several other new members.

Sonny Lubbick in his fifteen years as CSU football Head Coach led the team in its most successful era. However, a statement from the Catholic Foundation noted, “it is Mr. Lubbick’s love for and commitment to the Church in northern Colorado that he brings to his service as a trustee of the Foundation.”

Bishop Conley has served as a Kansas parish pastor, a theology instructor, and a Vatican official. He was appointed to the Archdiocese of Denver in April and was ordained bishop on May 30.

The two new members joined the board at the trustees’ June 30 quarterly meeting.

Three other leading Catholics joined the Catholic Foundation Board at its March 17 annual meeting. They are Lou Jahde, who founded Palace Construction in 1963 and is now its CEO; Kevin J. Kopp, who is Senior Vice President and Senior Institutional Consultant at Smith Barney, and a successful money manager who has helped establish the 529 College Plan for the state of Colorado; and Terry Polakovic, a co-founder and executive director of ENDOW, a Catholic women’s studies program based on the teachings of Pope John Paul II.

Gerald J. “Bud” Laber, President of the Catholic Foundation, welcomed the new members, saying “each of our five new Trustees is an extraordinary addition to the Foundation and I look forward to working with them to ensure a promising financial future for the Church in northern Colorado and beyond.”

The Catholic Foundation board is predominantly composed of lay Catholic men and women who help the Foundation foster philanthropy, manage funds, and make grants to advance the priorities of the Catholic Church in northern Colorado and elsewhere. The Foundation’s Board of Trustees awards over $5 million in grants annually.
