Sandra Maxfield: Community Service Recognition

Sandra Maxfield is the Community Service Recognition recipient, lovingly submitted by Linda, Jennifer, and Tricia Lohse of the Tucson Foundations.

Sandy, a Canadian transplant, embraced the Old Pueblo arts and culture and health and human services community as a community volunteer as soon as she arrived. While working in Michigan as a Registered Nurse, Sandy met Robert Maxfield during his medical residency. The two married and moved to Tucson to build a medical career and a family. Sandy fully adopted the Southern Arizona nonprofit community with her enthusiastic and influential volunteer leadership.

As a governance volunteer, Sandy has served on the Boards of Directors for the: Tucson Museum of Art, Arizona Theatre Company, Tucson Pima Arts Council, Amerind Museum, and Arizona Aerospace Foundation among others. Her years of governance work in policy building, outreach, and fundraising has inspired many new residents to engage in our community through special events, arts performance openings, and advanced previews. Sandy’s ambassadorial nature makes her a natural recruiter for new board members and new talent, making her a popular mentor and a super connector. As a role model, she is a generous philanthropist and volunteer fundraiser. She was acknowledged in 1999 by the Association of Fundraising Professionals – Southern Arizona Chapter, with the Outstanding Fundraising Volunteer Award.

It is without a doubt her years as a governance volunteer that the ladies at Tucson Foundations gratefully acknowledge today. Serving on committees, school councils, boards of directors, and in appointed positions, Sandy Maxfield is an experienced community volunteer. Volunteering with all three Lohse ladies–at different times and with different organizations–is cause for Community Service Recognition. Tucson Foundations proudly recognizes and celebrates the volunteer service and community leadership of Mrs. Sandra Maxfield.

SAVMA Awards 2024 include the Community Service Recognition for Sandra Maxfield.
