Molly Melia joined the Community Foundation of Louisville staff in July 2017 after having served as an intern in the Marketing and Communications department since June 2016.
As the Senior Associate of Marketing & Communications, Molly leads the Foundation’s 24-hour online giving day, Give For Good Louisville, which has raised over $26 million since it’s inception in 2014. Additionally, Molly assists with the Foundation’s brand presence, including aspects of marketing, public relations, advertising, content creation, and new media.
Currently serving as an advisory board member of the Louisville Youth Philanthropy Council, and having worked as a ‘Big Sister’ with the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kentuckiana, Molly finds it crucial to show people of all ages that philanthropy is achievable. She enjoys sharing the different stories of nonprofits around the community through her work with Give For Good Louisville, and hopes this initiative will continue to inspire people of all different backgrounds that anyone can be a philanthropist.

She also earned her Master’s of Arts and Communication in May 2018 from Bellarmine University, where she focused her research on branding, online fundraising, and the assimilation rate of volunteers and employees in the nonprofit sector.
