40 Under Forty: Maryann C. Johnson

8/21/2017

Johnson oversees fundraising, marketing and strategic planning at Oak Hill and developed a diversified fundraising plan using Community Investment Tax Credits – a gift-matching program raising $800,000 in new funding. Ultimately, Johnson finds community needs and pairs them with programming to make the community a better place to live, work and play. Last fall, Johnson completed the national Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business program and used her knowledge to assist Oak Hill in developing a sustainability plan.
She serves on the Canal District Alliance board. Her and husband, Rob, have twin daughters, Ashley and Claire.
