Suzanne Gonzalez will oversee MAOF’s fundraising and marketing initiatives, the community service provider announced Tuesday.

“Ms. Gonzalez brings a wealth of experience in Development and in the non-profit sector. In addition, as a former Gift Planning Officer with the California Community Foundation, she brings expertise as to what Foundations look for in successful proposals,” said Martin Castro, MAOF President and CEO. “We are delighted to have her on our team.”

Gonzalez called it an honor to be joining “such an exemplary organization that has a legacy of success in the community.”

She said she looks forward to building on MAOF’s accomplishments to ensure that the essential services the nonprofit provides “will continue to positively impact the lives of many.”

In addition to PADRES and the California Community Foundation, Gonzalez has also held fundraising posts at organizations such as the JWCH Institute, Pasadena Heritage, Clinica Msr. Oscar A. Romero and the CaliforniaKids Healthcare Foundation.

She holds a J.D. degree from Loyola Law School and a B.A. degree in English from the University of California at Berkeley.
