SARASOTA, Fla. (August 7, 2014) Bob Carter Companies LLC has added Kerry Bartlett to its team of philanthropy and fundraising consultants serving clients in the United States, Mexico and the Middle East (www.BobCarterCo.com).
Bartlett, who will be a Managing Director for Bob Carter Companies, has extensive experience in developing nonprofit organizations and fundraising. Following a career in public relations, Bartlett worked with several large nonprofits in the Treasure Coast of Florida area and then accepted the challenge of becoming the first Executive Director for the Indian River Community Foundation. She helped IRCF grow from startup to managing $24 million in assets restricted for charitable purposes and facilitating an additional $21 million in grants.
“It’s an honor to be associated with Bob Carter Companies, a nationally respected consulting firm with a growing reputation for guiding organizations and their leadership to more effectively achieve their missions,” Bartlett said. “I look forward to the opportunity to provide counsel to a diverse group of nonprofit organizations on a regional and national basis while drawing on the best practices I have learned and utilized over my 24-year career in this sector.”
Bartlett will focus on three areas of expertise to help nonprofit clients succeed: Fund development planning, strategic planning, and board governance. She will assist with identifying an organization’s programmatic needs and exploring how donors can be engaged to meet those needs; helping board members and staff leaders set directions to meet the organization’s long-term vision; and guiding board development efforts to help board members become strong and effective leaders.
“Kerry’s deep experience in the philanthropy sector as a foundation executive gives her a unique perspective as a funder but also an understanding of the best practices in planning and delivering on mission,” said Bob Carter, president and CEO of Bob Carter Companies. “These are vital for successful nonprofit organizations, especially today. We are excited that Kerry is joining the team and will be assisting our clients.”
Bartlett’s career history includes working for United Way, Visiting Nurses Association and Hospice Foundation. A life-long resident of Vero Beach, Florida, she graduated from the University of Florida and earned an MBA from Nova Southeastern University.
