As philanthropic leaders and donors gathered to celebrate the 30th anniversary of CAF America, the organisation announced Char Mollison as the new board chair.
‘Char steps into her new role at a pivotal time in CAF America’s history; with 30 years of cross-border giving under our belt and reaching the milestone of granting over $2.5 billion in donor funds since the beginning of our organization, her leadership is going to position us for record successes in our next 30 years,’ said Ted Hart, CAF America President and CEO. ‘Her insights, vision, and proven track record will help us to mobilize the tremendous resources needed to generate enduring, positive social impact in communities around the world.’
Mollison succeeds Rob Buchanan, who has served as CAF America’s Chair since 2013. Under Buchanan’s leadership, CAF America created its second subsidiary organization, CAF Canada, and granted more than $1.3 billion in charitable contributions.
CAF America serves a grantmaking network of more than 380,000 organisations in 135 countries.
