Malouf Foundation™ Names Sage Hancock as Director of Impact

LOGAN, Utah—The Malouf Foundation™ has announced Sage Hancock as their director of impact. Her newly created role oversees impact initiatives of Malouf™, including the work of Malouf Foundation™ and Elizabeth Smart Foundation (ESF). Hancock came from ESF when the two organizations officially joined forces earlier this year. 

“I’m so impressed by Malouf™ and their desire to use business as a force for good,” Hancock shared. “I'm excited to work with community leaders and business partners to expand the impact of the Malouf Foundation™—to provide community education, as well as healing and advocacy for survivors.” 

As executive director of ESF and director of impact at the Malouf Foundation™, Hancock works with her team to further the development of existing programs—including OnWatch™, Smart Defense™, Raise, Juniper Scholarship, Rooms Restored™, Heroes Landing™ and the “We Believe You” campaign—analyze future efforts, and work closely with donors.

With a strong background and focus on philanthropy, Hancock prioritizes the financial success of the Malouf Foundation™ and ESF by fostering valuable relationships with major donors, foundations and corporate partners, as well as persistently pursuing grant opportunities to expand reach and influence. 

Hancock has several years of direct nonprofit experience. She began with a small healthcare organization working in development and operations and most recently worked in fundraising for five universities and extensive worldwide humanitarian efforts. This past year, she completed her MBA degree through Louisiana State University Shreveport. 

“Sage’s philanthropic experience has already helped us scale our sustainability and impact,” said Jake Neeley, executive director of the Malouf Foundation™. “Plus, her business development mindset has led to several new partnerships that intersect multiple areas of Malouf™. Sage will be instrumental in all future growth.”
