Marley Gaddis
Grants Director

Marley has more than a decade of grant writing experience under her belt – all of it with The Freshwater Trust. Prior to discovering she had an impressive knack for securing valuable funding, she worked as an account executive for a graphic design firm in San Francisco. Marley holds a Bachelor of Liberal Studies degree from the University of Central Florida. As the Grants Director, she now oversees fundraising primarily from foundation and agency sources, writing and coordinating proposals that bring in approximately $2 million annually. Outside the office, Marley enjoys exploring the Pacific Northwest with her husband and dog, designing jewelry, and performing with her band.

Marley’s Why: A lot has changed at TFT in the nearly 20 years I have worked here, but the fundamentals that keep me excited about this organization have not. TFT is a community of incredibly intelligent, creative and hard-working individuals committed to improving our freshwater future, and I am impressed by my colleagues every day.
