Barbara Goodmon To Head A.J. Fletcher Foundation

New AJFF President Barbara Goodmon

Barbara Goodmon, a member of the board of the A.J. Fletcher Foundation in Raleigh, has been elected board president and will serve as executive of the $45 million-asset foundation.

Goodmon, who will work part-time without pay, will succeed Tom McGuire, who is stepping down after 15 years as executive director to start a management advisory practice.

Jim Goodmon, CEO of Capitol Broadcasting Co., who has served as president of the foundation’s board and is married to Barbara Goodmon, has been elected board chairman, a new position.

Barbara Goodmon says the foundation will be flexible in its funding, supporting a broad range of causes, while also becoming “an effective voice for human services, statewide and in the Triangle.”

A registered nurse, Goodmon is a graduate of Meredith College and of the master’s program in liberal studies at N.C. State University.

For more information, check out The Philanthropy Journal article about Barbara Goodmon’s election as the new head of the Fletcher Foundation.

She chairs the Wake County Human Services Board and is a member of the board of The Healing Place of Wake County, a residential facility she helped found for homeless men with alcohol and drug addiction.

She also was instrumental in the creation of a new initiative at NCSU that will support nonprofit studies, research and services.

The Fletcher Foundation has agreed to give $1 million over four years to the initiative for operations if NCSU can match those funds.
