President & CEO Chris Nelson

Chris comes to FSD from Boulder-based nonprofit organization TGTHR, where he has served as CEO since 2018. During his 14 years at TGTHR, Chris’s expertise in financial, operational, and program planning and management was instrumental in the success of the organization’s mission to end youth homelessness. His background in leadership, mission-oriented growth, development, facilities expansion, and donor cultivation make him uniquely qualified to lead FSD into the future.

“I am incredibly excited to be joining an organization that is truly passionate about their mission. I am inspired by the mission of FSD because I have spent my entire adult life contributing to the improvement of circumstances for people in their daily lives. I know my life will be enriched by helping to fulfill FSD’s mission through working with an amazing group of people and dogs."
