Joseph Matty, JourneyCare Foundation President

As President of the JourneyCare Foundation, Joseph Matty, together with the Foundation team, helps ensure that JourneyCare keeps one of its most important promises: to never turn anyone away because of an inability to pay. From high-profile fundraising events such as the Galas and Decades Dance, to the annual appeal campaign and direct one-to-one donor relationship building, Joseph oversees the Foundation’s many successful initiatives. 

Joseph joined JourneyCare following more than 14 years at Northern Illinois University, where he most recently served as CEO of the alumni association and COO of the university’s foundation simultaneously. His experience in achieving long-term funding goals and managing governance for both organizations makes him a great fit to take the JourneyCare Foundation to new levels of excellence.
