Director of Financial Development
Karen Martin has been involved with Charlotte area nonprofits – as a volunteer, an implementer, and a fundraiser – since she moved to town in 1993. Over the years she has served as Director of Foundation and Community Relations at (what was then) Thompson Children's Home, as Director of Corporate & Foundation Relations at Davidson College, and as a fundraising consultant for nonprofits addressing children's mental health, educational opportunities for underserved students, food insecurity, homelessness, and more... helping to raise more than $185 million along the way.
She has seen the breadth of needs of our area nonprofits, and now is thrilled to be part of Apparo as the Director of Financial Development, helping to empower nonprofits through technology.
When not building lasting relationships that generate powerful community impact, Karen enjoys reading, attending live theatre, and spending time with her husband and twin teenagers.
