Keith Fulcher


Keith Fulcher joined the Community Foundation in 2019 after a 23-year career at Delta State University as head of its Alumni-Foundation, its development director and then special assistant to the university president, where he focused on securing major gifts. Previously, the Vicksburg native served as teacher, coach, and principal at schools in Biloxi, Jackson, and Vicksburg. He earned bachelor and master degrees from Delta State and continued his education at William Carey University, Boston College, and Harvard University. He helped to found the Principals’ Center at Millsaps College.

Keith’s passion for education is grounded in seeing the compassion lived by his grandparents–his maternal grandparents were children of Lebanese immigrants and his paternal grandparents were sharecroppers in Yazoo County. Both struggled financially, but held on to their core value of helping those in need, a value passed on to him.

Keith is charged with leading the Community Foundation to its goal of $50 million in assets by the year 2028. Keith also volunteers his time in fundraising for other charities including the Catholic Diocese Foundation, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and the Rotary Club. He is married to the former Anne Verret of New Orleans who is a graduate of Millsaps College, and they have three school-age children.
