Who We Are

Patte Koval - Monument Group

Patte Koval, Management Support Specialist

Following the death of her beloved husband Barry in 2015, Patte Koval knew she had to start filling some of the empty space from their very busy lives. Supporting their community with time, talent, and treasure had always been important to them collectively and individually. The opportunity to work with The Monument Group came at just the right time and felt like a way to help her complete the circle of nonprofit work she and Barry shared together.

Patte works primarily on the business side of things for The Monument Group, much like an internal consultant. She supports administrative, organizational, and technology related functions.

Patte joined the board of Family Lifeline (FLL) in 2002. She has held many leadership, organizational, and planning positions, including spearheading the strategic planning process twice. She is a long-serving member of FLL’s Executive Committee and was instrumental in working with FLL in its merger with CHIP in 2011.

Since its inception, Patte has been involved with Richmond Promise Neighborhood (RPN) in various leadership capacities and grass-roots efforts. She is a member of RPN’s Advisory Board and serves on the Board of Directors of Peter Paul Development Center, which merged with RPN in 2013. More recently, Patte joined the Board of Voices for Virginia’s Children, a state-wide advocacy organization whose mission is to champion public policies that improve the lives of Virginia’s children. She currently serves on the Legislative Committee and the Board Culture Committee.

Patte also has experience in the funding side of nonprofit management. She is currently the Chair of the Jenkins Foundation Board of Directors and served for several years as a member of The Community Foundation’s Grants Distribution Committee. From 2009-2015, Patte served on United Way’s Community Building Committee which makes grant-making recommendations to United Way’s Board of Directors. She has been involved with Impact 100 since it started in Richmond.

Patte is a graduate of the College of William and Mary with a BA in Government and English. Her professional career includes executive positions as Benefits Manager of both Wheat First Butcher Singer and Hunton & Williams. In more recent years, she earned a certificate in nonprofit management from Nonprofit Learning Point/VCU and is a graduate of Leadership Metro Richmond.
