Ashley Stibbens

Philanthropic Services Associate

Ashley Stibbens joins the Community Foundation as the Philanthropic Services Associate. Her job is to make philanthropy accessible and enjoyable for our donors through direct donor service. She also works hard behind the scenes to make giving through the Foundation easy and efficient.

Ashley joined the Foundation in 2022, bringing her positive and confident attitude to the team. She has over 11 years of experience in the hospitality industry, helped run major charity golf events in the Monterey Peninsula, and spent several years in the nonprofit sector in Monterey County. She is finishing up her AA in Business Management at Monterey Peninsula Community College and transferring to University of California Santa Cruz in the summer quarter of 2022. She grew up in Yucca Valley, a small southern California town, and rooted herself on the shores of the Monterey bay 10 years ago.

Ashley is ready to help donors and nonprofits build a vibrant, equitable, and flourishing Santa Cruz County. When not at work, look for Ashley at the closest beach. You’ll likely find her with her four-legged best friend, Boomer. She’s a passionate music lover and if you are close by, you’ll always hear her humming a tune. Ashley is a die-hard Golden State Warriors basketball fan and she’s not shy about it! She is always looking for the next opportunity to put a smile on someone’s face or to make you feel welcomed.
