The Cape Cod Foundation is pleased to announce that it recently appointed Joanna Christopher as its Marketing and Communications Officer.
Before starting her own agency in 2016, Christopher served as the Director of Marketing for the Cape Symphony for four years. Prior to that, she led the marketing/communications efforts for Snow’s Home and Garden and Snow’s Fuel Company in Orleans for almost twenty years. Christopher also was the Editor of the Best Read Guide: Cape Cod, a local publication for vacationers, and helped produce several franchise publications in Savannah, GA, Hilton Head, SC and Tennessee’s Smoky Mountain Region.
Christopher, a native Cape Codder, grew up in Falmouth. After graduating magna cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in communications-journalism from Stephens College in Columbia, MO, she returned from the heartland to make a life by the shore. She and her husband, David, live in Mashpee.
Christopher says her work with several non-profit organizations as clients inspired her to join the Foundation’s in-house team part-time. “It’s all about impact,” she says. “The Foundation manages hundreds of charitable funds and helps distribute millions of dollars back into the Cape community every year for health and human services, environmental preservation, educational programs and scholarships, arts & cultural opportunities and community and economic development. It’s an incredible story to tell.”
Christopher will work closely with President and CEO Kristin O’Malley to develop and implement a marketing and communications strategy that not only informs the Cape community about the resources and opportunities available, but also invites those who want to make a difference shape their own Cape Cod legacies.
“Joanna brings more than thirty years of marketing and communications experience and a lifetime of love for Cape Cod to the Foundation,” O’Malley stated. “She’s a natural fit for our small and mighty team, and we are so excited to welcome her.”
The Cape Cod Foundation is a community foundation whose mission is to build permanent charitable resources for community betterment through informed grantmaking and civic leadership. The Foundation has distributed more than $60 million in grants and scholarships since its founding in 1989. www.capecodfoundation.org
