Debbie Rivera

Finance Associate

Debbie joined the Community Foundation Santa Cruz County in 2018. As Finance Associate, she manages Accounts Payables and interacts with vendors. Previously, Debbie worked for a diverse range of organizations, including a local CPA, United Way of Santa Cruz County, Nordic Naturals, and Scurfield Construction.

Drawing on more than 10 years in bookkeeping and coursework at Cabrillo College, Debbie manages Accounts Payable and supports the Controller and Chief Operating and Financial Officer with various finance projects. Debbie is proud to be able to apply her problem-solving skills, database knowledge, and attention to detail to support the Foundation’s mission.

While numbers have a special place in Debbie’s heart, she also loves the special places around Santa Cruz County where she’s formed a lifetime of warm memories, like fishing with her Dad off the cement ship at Seacliff State Beach.
