Hilton Foundation, she was instrumental in preparing the original grant for the Sisters Leadership Development Initiative (SLDI) for submission to the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation.Sr. Marcia most recently served as Executive Director of the Conrad N. Hilton Fund for Sisters in Agoura Hills, CA. The Fund for Sisters is a foundation that awards grants to sisters’ ministries all over the world, but primarily in African and Asian countries. In her capacity as Executive Director at the Hilton Fund for Sisters, Sr. Marcia visited most of the African countries served by ASEC. She has returned to a rewarding and fulfilling ministry with ASEC at a time of remarkable expansion in terms of the number of sisters and the number of countries served.
