After 23 years of bold leadership for the place we call home, Community Foundation of Broward President/CEO Linda B. Carter plans to retire by the end of 2020.

Linda has shaped the Community Foundation into a local philanthropy champion that provides leadership and builds permanent resources to tackle Broward’s biggest challenges – today and for generations to come.

Linda said her confidence in the Foundation’s strength and stability makes this the right time to step away to spend more time with family and tackle a “bucket list” of adventures.

“The Community Foundation of Broward has proven that the power of philanthropy can deliver solutions to Broward’s biggest challenges,” she said. “I have loved being a part of this important work to connect people who care to causes that matter. I can’t wait to see the bold impact to come from the amazing team at the Community Foundation and the Fundholders who all care so much about this community.”

Linda announced her retirement a year in advance to ensure a smooth transition as we identify our next leader. A newly created CEO Search Committee to lead that effort includes Foundation Board Chairman James Donnelly and Board members Steven W. Hudson, Juliet Murphy Roulhac, J. David Armstrong, Jr., Doria M. Camaraza, Alice Lucia Jackson and Ramon A. Rodriguez.

“We are so thankful for Linda’s leadership, which has helped the Foundation grow and become stronger than ever,” said Foundation Board member and former chairman Steven W. Hudson. “Now we look forward to finding a leader who can build on Linda’s 23-year legacy and keep the Foundation’s bold momentum going.”

The Foundation’s next leader will take the helm of a highly respected force for good that provides community leadership, fosters bold philanthropy and builds permanent resources to tackle the issues that matter most to Broward.
