Director of Strategic Fundraising
Maggie Clay Love brings 35 years of nonprofit management and development experience to the TMMG team. She spent her first 20+ years actively and successfully involved in resource development and nonprofit management, including 11 years as Vice President for the American Heart Association and five years as the Chief Development Officer for the North Carolina Symphony.

As an independent consultant for the past 13 years, Love focuses on the key elements of organizational capacity building – working with nonprofit boards and staff to identify, address and remedy core infrastructure challenges that may impede long-term sustainability. She knows that building strategic fundraising plans is critical to overall organizational stability. Capacity building areas of expertise include comprehensive organizational assessment; mission and vision alignment; strategic and tactical planning; and Board and staff leadership development and governance.

On a Personal Note
A North Carolina native, Love lives in Raleigh with her husband Allyn, a professional musician. They have two grown children and an adorable granddaughter. When she isn’t working with a variety of nonprofits on overcoming challenges, you are likely to find her working in one of her vegetable or flower gardens, enjoying time with family and friends, and supporting her community’s arts offerings.
