Molly Longmire

Molly Longmire is Civil Air Patrol’s new deputy chief of philanthropy and national partnerships, Kristina Jones, CAP chief of Philanthropy, has announced.

Longmire will primarily focus on creating and developing strategies to establish, cultivate and provide overall leadership and management of gifts from institutions to support budget and strategic planning priorities;  leadership of organizational partnerships; responsibility for managing the national grants program and serving as a supervisor to the national Staff grants team; and support for efforts in other areas of philanthropy, including individual, planned, major and annual giving efforts.

“We are so excited to have Molly Longmire join the CAP team,” Jones said. “Her energy and experience in fundraising, particularly her understanding of military and veteran communities, will assist us as we move forward with growing our corporate and foundation support across the country.”

Longmire brings nearly 14 years of fund development experience to the position. Most recently, she led fundraising activities for Camaraderie Foundation, providing mental and behavioral health services at no cost to active-duty military, post-9/11 veterans and their families. She sits on several boards related to veteran and military causes, is chair-elect of Girls Inc. of Pinellas in Florida and is a lifetime member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliary.

Longmire is aunt to two CAP cadets as well as sister and sister-in-law to 2nd Lts. Amy Maltbie and Reed Maltbie of the California Wing’s South San Diego Cadet Squadron 201.

She holds a bachelor’s degree in history with distinction in the major from Mary Baldwin University in Staunton, Virginia, and is a credentialed certified fundraising executive.

“I couldn’t be more excited to join the Civil Air Patrol team and build upon the solid foundation the development department has built,” Longmire said. “What this organization has accomplished through the cadet, aerospace education and emergency services programs is incredibly inspiring and such an important resource on both local and national levels. I am honored to work to secure the future of our programs and help augment the vital support we provide to our nation.”
