CCC Foundation Names New Executive Director

 Greg A. Fitzgerald, a veteran of philanthropy, development and nonprofit management, has been named the executive director of the Clackamas Community College Foundation. The CCC Board of Education approved the hire at its June meeting. Fitzgerald will start on July 2. 

 Fitzgerald has been a consultant at his own company, Visionwork, of Paso Robles, Calif., for the past 20 years. During that time he has assisted dozens of nonprofits with vision planning, board development, fiscal management, policy development, government relations, team building and fund development. He is also the cofounder of NOZA, the world’s largest searchable database of charitable gifts for use by nonprofit prospect researchers and development departments. NOZA was acquired by Blackbaud Inc. in 2010.

Fitzgerald’s career includes several years with the Catholic Family Services of Los Angeles as the executive director of the Hope In Youth program and director of the Family and Community Services Division. He earned his bachelor’s degree in social work at Fresno State University and his master’s in counseling at Oregon State.

The new executive director replaces Karen Martini, who is retiring from the CCC Foundation at the end of the month. She started work at CCC in 1999 as director of development and was named executive director of the Foundation in 2006. Under her leadership, the Foundation’s endowment grew from $8 million to $12 million and annual student scholarships increased from $450,000 to $600,000.

The CCC Foundation is a 501(3)(C) nonprofit that generates funding to provide access through scholarships and grants for students to pursue their educational and career paths. The Foundation also supports efforts to grow programs, renovate and build facilities, and enhance technology, creating an environment where students can be successful in moving into careers or furthering their education.
