 Charlotte Community Foundation Announces New Director of Marketing & Development

Punta Gorda, FL– The Charlotte Community Foundation is pleased to announce that Ashley Maher recently joined the organization as the Director of Marketing & Development.

“Ashley has the skill set, knowledge, experience and personality to provide strategic leadership to the Foundation’s annual marketing plan, brand development and to our new CHARLOTTE CARES Campaign.  Ashley brings an enthusiastic and hardworking ethic to the Foundation,” states Tami Sender, Foundation CEO.  

Serving previously as the Director of Marketing with Unity Medical, Ashley has a history of working in nonprofits in addition to serving on various nonprofit boards such as the United Way of Charlotte County and Fred Lang Foundation.

“I am ready to hit the ground running,” says Maher.  “We are fortunate to live in paradise but unfortunately paradise can be prone to poverty. The number of requests for help from our local nonprofits in 2016 far outstripped what the Foundation could fulfill.  It is my hope through collaboration of donors, community partners and CCF that we will not only build the grant and scholarship programs we have, but flourish in new opportunities that strengthen our community.  The Charlotte Community Foundation serves a great purpose and I’m thrilled to begin to tell our story.”

“Unfortunately, it seems that there are many misconceptions regarding the Foundation and I believe that we are one of the best kept secrets in Charlotte County. It is important that we change that.” said Tami Sender, Foundation CEO.

Charlotte Community Foundation, Inc. was established over 20 years ago with assets from the Adventist Hospital Foundation. Today the Foundation provides personalized donor services to assist individuals, families and businesses in establishing tax smart charitable funds that provide grants, education, resources and support to nonprofits in Charlotte County.  The Foundation’s mission is connecting people who care with causes that matter.  Call 941-637-0077 for more information.
