RALEIGH, N.C. – In an effort to provide the best possible service to donors and fund-holders, the North Carolina Community Foundation has named a team of three executives to  head up fundraising for the organization.

Beth Boney Jenkins, a 10-year veteran of the foundation and former vice president for affiliate services, has been named vice president of development.

Leslie Stewart, who has worked in the foundation’s Hickory office for three years, was named regional development officer and will continue in her role as the organization’s liaison to Catawba Valley Community Foundation, one of 60 affiliate foundations.

And Mary Morgan, who has served as legal counsel for four years, is now philanthropy counsel.

Together, the team will handle fundraising, including estate and planned-giving services, for the statewide organization.

“This group has a deep understanding of philanthropic services and a deep appreciation for community foundation work and our state,” Jennifer Tolle Whiteside, president and CEO of the foundation, says in a statement.

The foundation manages more than $130 million in assets and has awarded a total of almost $63 million in grants since its inception in 1988.
