Michael Chatman, senior vice president of philanthropy at the Community Foundation of the Ozarks, has been named one of the Top 50 Power & Influence philanthropists by The NonProfit Times.
The NonProfit Times is a leading business publication for nonprofit management. The group of 50, which includes philanthropists from a wide range of foundations and nonprofit organizations, were cited for ideas and innovative thinking that contribute to a more civil society.
Chatman’s role at the CFO focuses on building generosity throughout the CFO’s network of 44 regional affiliate foundations across central and southern Missouri.
His inclusion on the list also cites his other philanthropic involvement, such as his #whyigive movement on Twitter (@michaelchatman) and his personal interests in charitable giving.
“He is a social media influencer in philanthropy,” The NonProfit Times said.
CFO President Brian Fogle noted that Chatman was one of only three representatives of community foundations included on the 17th annual list released this week.
“We are delighted to see Michael recognized for his work here as well as his involvement in these other aspects of philanthropy that all contribute to building a stronger culture of generosity,” Fogle said.
