3 new members join Princeton Area Community Foundation board of trustees

Three new members joined the Princeton Area Community Foundation board of trustees, as the organization celebrates a milestone: It has awarded more than $200 million in grants since it was founded in 1991.

Marygrace Billek of West Windsor, Ka’Neda Bullock of Trenton and Michael Ullmann of Princeton were appointed to three-year terms and bring a wealth of experience in grantmaking, finance and the law.

“We are pleased to welcome Marygrace and Ka’Neda to the board of trustees, and we are so happy that Mike is returning to his volunteer post,” board Chair Sonia Delgado said. “Their insights and expertise will be assets to our board.”

For more than 30 years, the Community Foundation has helped philanthropists give to the causes that matter most to them. It is home to more than 400 charitable funds, and it has now granted more than $200 million to nonprofits near and far.

“We are thrilled to announce this grantmaking achievement, and it is thanks to our incredibly generous community that we have reached this milestone,” Delgado said. “Our new trustees are joining a board that has a history of more than three decades of service in the region.”

Billek is the retired director of human services for Mercer County, where she oversaw services to at-risk youth, senior citizens, individuals and families who do not have permanent housing, and individuals with disabilities. She began her career as a residence counselor at SERV Centers of New Jersey. In 2004, she became the Mercer County deputy director of human services and two years later, she was appointed to the role of director. In that role, she chaired or participated in more than 30 boards and commissions.

Bullock, an award-winning wealth manager and employer retirement plan adviser, is the president and founder of Master Plan Investment Group in Pennington. She is a sought-after speaker on a wide range of financial topics, including retirement income strategies, investing, long-term care and financial planning.

Ullmann retired last year as the executive vice president, general counsel of Johnson & Johnson and a member of the company’s Executive Committee after serving 11 years in that role and 34 years with J&J. At J&J, he was responsible for Legal, Government Affairs & Policy, Compliance, Privacy, Security and Aviation on a global basis. He previously served as the company’s general counsel of the Worldwide Medical Devices Group, corporate secretary and a business development attorney. Before joining J&J, he practiced law in New York City.
