In the philanthropic sector, Ahmad is the past Board Chair of the Saskatoon Community Foundation and Royal University Hospital Foundation, former inaugural Chair of Gold Medal Plates Saskatoon, and a board member of the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency.

"I am excited for the opportunity to serve the SPSF as Executive Director. As a parent, I am grateful to the Saskatoon Public School Division and teachers for supporting my children in their educational ambitions. Early learning and literacy are cornerstone investments in our children's futures," said Ahmad.
"Zeba has been a tireless advocate in our community and we know she will bring professionalism, enthusiasm and ingenuity to this new role. We look forward to working with Zeba and the foundation's directors as they foster new partnerships and engage supporters to elevate the opportunities for our students," said Director of Education Barry MacDougall.
