Montgomery County Office News

Dear Friends,
I hope this note finds you well and that you’re enjoying what remains of summer! I’m writing today with some staffing news.

C. Marie Taylor, the Executive Director of our Montgomery County office, will be leaving The Community Foundation to become the President & CEO of Leadership Montgomery. Leadership is a premier organization and this is a great opportunity for her.

Her last day with us full time will be September 10. We will be conducting a broad search for her replacement over the coming weeks, although these are very big shoes to fill! Marie has been a valued member of our team – successfully launching a new donor engagement series and galvanizing support for our work throughout the county. She has also been instrumental in the funding and production of our forthcoming study on African American youth in Montgomery County. Our team is continuing this great work and we’re grateful for the strong foundation Marie helped build to sustain it.

Please join me and the entire Community Foundation team in thanking Marie for all she’s done for the community in her time with us. We know she’ll continue doing big, important things in her new capacity.

If you have questions or inquiries about your work with our Montgomery County team, please contact C. Marie Taylor at
