New Director Of Development At Marshall Foundation

Nancy Marshall, president of the Arthur R. Marshall Foundation for the Everglades, has announced that Ann Paton has joined the nonprofit organization as director of development.

“Ann Paton comes to the Marshall Foundation as a seasoned fundraiser and administrator with substantial experience in creating and sustaining strong community relationships that generate committed stakeholders,” Marshall said. “In fact, her career as a successful fundraiser includes serving as vice president of advancement at Barry University for six years, 2005-2011.”

Paton brings to the Marshall Foundation a 20-plus year background in higher education fundraising. She began in the early 1990s by managing annual fund and alumni relations programs for Dartmouth Medical School, and then moved to the Brown University School of Medicine to run a successful $70 million capital campaign.

In her new position, Paton is responsible for all of the Marshall Foundation’s fundraising efforts, such as securing gifts from individuals, corporations, foundations, and other private funding sources, as well as long-term development campaigns and various special events, including the annual River of Grass Gala.

The new director of development position is funded by a recent grant from the AWC Family Foundation in Nashville, Tenn. For more information on the Marshall Foundation, visit
