Michael Chatman built his career on the mantra “anyone can be a philanthropist,” and Cape Coral is fortunate to have his steady hand guiding the Foundation’s future. In August 2016, Chatman stepped into his current role and quickly proved to be a powerhouse in forming strategic partnerships that will pave the way for the growth and development.

Chatman is one of the most influential philanthropy leaders in America.

Whether it’s leading the Financial Advisors Charitable Fund, serving as president of the Global Center for Generosity at Cape Coral Community Foundation, hosting “The Michael Chatman Giving Show” on the Unity Worldwide Radio Network, promoting the annual Philanthropy Experts & Leaders Academy, Chatman has an extensive network as a social media maven, publisher of digital content, corporate social responsibility consultant, public speaker and thought leader on cultivating generosity.
