Serving You Better

With new team members we are increasing ways to connect non-profits with an advisor, focusing on timely support based on your needs and project timelines. Our team brings a wealth of non-profit experience to help ensure your non-profit continues to receive high-quality and useful support through the program.

Our Non-profit Advisors team includes Gary Ockenden, Andrew Jarrett, Zoë Creighton and Kevin Allen. For additional information about the Advisors click here.

We also have a new Program Manager, Laurie Cordell. Laurie has been with the Trust for over six years and brings her varied experience supporting communities to the program. Connect with Laurie at nonprofit@cbt.org or call 1.800.505.8998.
