In the newly created role of Foundation Manager, Ashley Arnold Slane ensures operational excellence and efficiency at ACGT. Her impeccable standards and functional perspective are shaped by years of financial management and systems management experience with private, community, bank, and family foundations; corporations; government agencies; and individual donors.
Slane lost her father to melanoma when she was just nine years old, her brother was 11 years old, and her sister was five years old. “It happened so quickly,” says Slane. “One day he was there and the next day he was just gone.” Today, as the mother of a nine-year-old and a five-year-old, this profound sense of loss is one of the things that draws her to ACGT and its mission of hope.
