West Chester – The Chester County Fund for Women and Girls announces the appointment of Susan Mostek, Esq., as its new Executive Director. Board Chair Cate Sennett, Esq. says “We are pleased to engage Susan’s talents as we build on the solid foundation laid by outgoing President Heidi McPherson. Susan’s clear passion for the Fund mission combines with substantial fundraising, non-profit management, and marketing experience. With Susan, we will work with partners across our region to increase our impact and enlist even greater support for improving the lives of women, girls, and families in Chester County.” Her official start date with the Fund is November 18th.

Susan Mostek will be leaving her role as Executive Director of the Phoenixville Public Library Foundation and also as the library’s Director of Development. She led the library’s successful capital campaign to fund its major renovation and expansion project, initiated a board governance best practices program, and developed the private fundraising component of the library’s strategic plan. A graduate of Tulane University and Temple Law School, she has Spanish language fluency and substantial accomplishments in the field of law.

Leading a women’s organization is familiar territory for Susan who served as President of the Junior League of Philadelphia between 2007 and 2008. As its top executive, she implemented marketing and corporate fundraising strategies for the 900-member, non-profit organization and was instrumental in launching a new strategic plan. She is a resident of Chester County where she and her husband have a son and two daughters.

“The Fund improves the lives of women and girls in Chester County in many different ways,” says Susan. “I am excited to become part of this vital resource and look forward to working with the community to see our impact grow even stronger.”
