Our Team

We are inspired advocates, volunteers and leaders committed to making a difference in the Massachusetts MetroWest community. We are dedicated to providing education, resources, funds and support in the areas of end-of-life and bereavement to our community partners, grantees and stakeholders.


Angela Crocker, Executive Director

“I came to The Parmenter Foundation because I was inspired by the award-winning children’s bereavement support program and the grief camp that Parmenter created. These types of programs have a big impact in children’s lives and in our community. I am excited to collaborate with many local organizations to fill the service gaps that exist and create end-of-life and bereavement programs that help our neighbors to have hope while facing end-of-life issues and the grief of losing a loved one."

Angela is responsible for the overall executive management of The Parmenter Foundation, including Board stewardship, grant administration, community partnerships, dynamic programming, strategic planning and donor relations. Prior to becoming its Executive Director, Angela worked in various roles at Parmenter for six years. She has served on the Kids First Board (Portland, ME) and served in many capacities within the Sudbury Public Schools parent organizations. In addition to her nonprofit experience, she practiced municipal and family law for ten years. Angela is a graduate of the University of Southern Maine and American University Washington College of Law.

"After my grandmother’s passing, the compassion, kindness and resources shared with my family to help us through the grieving process were gifts beyond words. So, Parmenter’s work is deeply personal to me. To know that I am part of a movement that supports children and families during an extremely painful time is a way to complete the circle of compassion."
