Ridings announces retirement.

Council on Foundations (CoF) President and CEO Dorothy S. Ridings announced she will retire during 2005. She will continue to lead the CoF until her successor has been selected.

"My nine years at the council have been enormously rewarding. Organized philanthropy is truly a success story, both in America and worldwide," said Ridings. "It has been a pleasure to have helped it grow and flourish."

Ridings, who is 65, joined CoF in 1996 from The Bradenton (Florida) Herald, where she had been publisher for eight years. She also held reporting and editing positions at newspapers in Charlotte, N.C.; Louisville, Ky., and Washington, D.C. She is a member of the Commission on Presidential Debates, chair of the Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary board and a past president of the League of Women Voters of the United States.
