Trenton Architect John Hatch Joins Princeton Area Community Foundation Board of Trustees

Hatch_JohnArchitect John Hatch has been appointed to the board of trustees for the Princeton Area Community Foundation.

Hatch, a partner with Clarke Caton Hintz, an architecture, planning and landscape architecture firm in Trenton, has more than 25 years of experience designing architecturally significant buildings in the local community and across the region. His work includes the restoration of the former governor’s mansion in Princeton, as well as the Roebling Complex in Trenton, the Trenton Masonic Temple, and the Trenton Makes Art Complex.

In addition to his design work, Hatch writes and lectures about such topics as historic preservation, sustainability and urban redevelopment. He serves on the Trenton Landmarks Commission, as well as on the boards of Passage Theatre and the New Jersey Capital Philharmonic in Trenton, and the New Jersey Historic Trust.

The Princeton Area Community Foundation promotes philanthropy and builds community across Mercer County and Central New Jersey. It provides charitable giving expertise to individuals, nonprofits and corporations, and makes grants to nonprofit organizations. Since its founding in 1991, the Community Foundation has built an endowment of $105 million and distributed more than $55 million in grants.

Hatch is one of two new board members serving on the foundation board. The other new member is Marguerite Mount, the leader of Mercadien P.C. Certified Public Accountant’s individual services group, which provides strategic business, tax and estate planning advice. A former Community Foundation trustee, Mount is also a former chair of the board of the American Red Cross.

Three long-serving board members have finished their terms of service: Richard Bilotti, former president and publisher of the Trenton Times; Samuel Lambert III of the Curtis McGraw Foundation; and John (Jay) Watson, vice president of the D&R Greenway Land Trust.

Carol Herring was also named the new board of trustees chair for the foundation. Her fundraising career includes serving as the president of the Rutgers University Foundation, and executive vice president of development and alumni affairs at Rutgers University. She has also held leadership positions with the Asia Society in New York, Barnard College and Princeton University over the past 30 years. She is currently a trustee for the boards of Princeton Day School and the Trenton Children’s Chorus. Herring succeeds Trustee David Scott, the retired General Counsel of Rutgers University, who will remain on the board after three years at the helm.
