Meet Our New Members
The Catholic Community Foundation of Minnesota (CCF) is delighted to welcome three new board members, Sheila Healy Berube, Julie Henderson Craven, and Jason Morrison.
“Each new board member brings a diverse set of skills, perspectives, and ways of living out their faith,” says CCF President Anne Cullen Miller. “Their extensive experience and executive skills will enrich CCF’s ability to meet the needs of the donors, parishes, ministries, and organizations we serve.”

With more than 20 years of investment experience working with Fortune 500 companies, nonprofit foundations, and high net-worth individuals and families, Sheila Healy Berube would be an asset on any board. What initially drew her to CCF was the opportunity to serve on a CCF advisory committee charged with exploring the topic of women in philanthropy. After connecting with advisory committee members who were fully engaged and passionate about the CCF mission, she was delighted to accept an invitation to join the board.
An unexpected benefit to Sheila is the opportunity to rediscover the roots and beauty of her Catholic faith. “There are so many different ways to experience Catholicism, but it’s all one church,” says Sheila. “At CCF, they’re very focused on honoring each donor’s faith and intention. I appreciate and respect that.”
Julie Henderson Craven
Julie Henderson Craven has a long-standing passion for promoting social justice — at a corporate, community, and personal level. As vice president of corporate communications for Hormel Foods, she produced the company’s first Corporate Social Responsibility reports.
After leaving the corporate world in 2016, Julie began supporting the restorative justice and healing work of the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis. Since then, she has worked tirelessly to reveal the trauma created by failures in leadership, racial injustice, and polarization and to promote healing. In 2021 she helped launch the Initiative on Restorative Justice and Healing at the University of St. Thomas School of Law, for which she serves as associate director.
Today she devotes her time to exploring how faith, restorative justice, and philanthropy connect. “I was drawn to board service at CCF because of the connection I felt to the foundation’s mission,” says Julie. “I’m grateful for this opportunity to work with Anne and her dynamic team.”
Having attended a Jesuit high school and Catholic universities for undergraduate and graduate studies, Jason Morrison knows firsthand the advantages of faith-based education. He carried his experience into his career in Catholic education —as a teacher, staff member, and eventually as Diocesan Secretary and CEO for Catholic Education in the Diocese of Scranton.
Last summer, Jason assumed the role of president of Cristo Rey Jesuit High School Twin Cities, where all students come from families of limited economic resources, 83% are children of native Spanish speakers, and 99% are youth of color. Jason is dedicated to the transformative nature of Catholic schools and communicating his faith for a better future for others through Catholic education.
“While I’m new to the Twin Cities, the Catholic Community Foundation of Minnesota is not new to me,” Jason shares. “The way CCF aligns Catholic values to steward resources, grant effectively, and bring about positive change is not only well known in education circles — it’s also both personally and professionally inspiring to me.”
