Gulf Coast Community Foundation (Gulf Coast) is pleased to announce the selection of Joe Carter, CAP® as its new Vice President of Philanthropy, and the promotion of Sasha Pyatte, CFRE to Director of Philanthropic Partnerships. Carter and Pyatte will play key roles in the execution of Gulf Coast’s strategic plan focused on providing donors and professional advisors with opportunities to deepen their philanthropic impact. “Joe Carter brings over 30 years of experience and knowledge in stewarding philanthropic partnerships,” shared Gulf Coast’s President | CEO Phillip Lanham, CAP®. “His passion for community was evident during his time with the Oklahoma City Community Foundation, and I'm thrilled that he will bring that expertise and compassion here for our community. “With the promotion of Sasha Pyatte to Director of Philanthropic Partnerships, our donors will experience a renewed sense of energy including bespoke services and Sasha’s unique ability to connect philanthropists with transformational community projects,” said Lanham. Carter shared that he is thrilled to immerse himself in his new community, “I am ready and excited to partner with our donors and professional advisors to create a legacy of bold and proactive philanthropy in the areas they care about most.” For the past 20 years, Carter served as Vice President of Development at the Oklahoma City Community Foundation where his focus on philanthropic strategies for donors allowed them to meet their charitable and financial goals and support the foundation’s nearly $750 million in community impact. He is a Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy (CAP®) serving as an American College facilitator and moderator for the CAP program, and currently serves on the board of the Advancement Network (AdNet), the national association of community foundation development professionals. During his tenure in Oklahoma, Carter presented to nonprofits and all disciplines of professional advisors throughout the state, region, and at national conferences on various charitable topics as it relates to business, tax, and estate planning. Carter’s expertise in continuing education and training will provide Gulf Coast’s donor families and professional advisors with exceptional experiences and opportunities. Pyatte joined Gulf Coast in May 2022 as a Philanthropic Advisor, served as Interim Vice President of Philanthropy, and now serves as Director of Philanthropic Partnerships. In this new role, she will lead the team that works directly with donors to help them reach their philanthropic goals through co-investment and leveraging opportunities to create meaningful impact together. In the past, Pyatte served as Director of Advancement & Strategic Partnerships at the Sarasota Performing Arts Foundation, and she was the Director of Philanthropy for Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida for 10 years.
