Kathleen H. Salazar, MBA
Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer
Kathy joined UniHealth Foundation in 1999 -- less than a year after the organization’s conversion to a private grantmaking foundation. She stepped into the role of Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer in 2000, and is responsible for overseeing all financial operations, including accounting, tax compliance, audit and investment portfolio. Prior to joining the Foundation, Kathy managed the trust department for a law firm, which provided a unique perspective of the fiscal operations and regulatory compliance of several private foundations, public charities and charitable annuity trusts. She received her MBA from Claremont Graduate University and BA from University of San Francisco.
Her commitment to the Los Angeles community is reflected in both civic and charitable activities. Kathy was appointed to the Cultural Affairs Commission by Mayor Richard Riordan, was a founding member of the Highland Park Heritage Trust and has served on the board of several local organizations. She currently serves on the board of the LAC+USC Medical Center Foundation in Boyle Heights.
