Interim Executive Director
Beth Schoeppler has been on the Loft staff since 2008 but has had a long history with the organization taking her first Loft class in 1983. Her nonprofit career—long enough that archeologists may soon be studying it—has included general management, communications, development, program planning, marketing, and evaluation for education, arts, and human service organizations of all sizes. As Loft managing director, Beth oversees finance, operations, IT, human resources, evaluation, and institutional giving with most of the hands-on work expertly executed by a team of talented colleagues. She also serves on the board and executive committee of the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits as the organization's treasurer. Her favorite saying is: “Every budget tells a story.” Beth believes that facts matter, but stories change minds.
