The Healthcare Foundation Announces New President


JUNE 23, 2022

Sarasota Memorial Healthcare Foundation announced today that Stacey Corley will join the organization as President on September 6, 2022. Corley succeeds Mason Ayres who announced in May he will be retiring this fall.

Healthcare Foundation board chair, Deb Kabinoff, is thrilled to welcome Corley to the organization.

“All of us feel extremely fortunate to have Stacey stepping into the leadership role at the Healthcare Foundation,” says Kabinoff. “Because our organization has experienced unprecedented growth during Mason’s tenure, our search for a new leader focused on candidates with outstanding development track records and a passion for our mission. Stacey is a perfect fit to lead us, and her close ties to the community will be instrumental in keeping our mission, and the momentum going.”

Corley is currently serving as Vice President for Advancement at Ringling College of Art+Design, where she has led multiple capital campaigns and worked closely with the College’s President to achieve the most successful fundraising year in the College’s history. She originally joined the organization in 2012 as a Senior Development Officer, becoming Assistant Vice President for Strategic Philanthropy in 2014 before moving into her current role.

“It is an honor to be joining an organization that has been so successful in the last few years,” says Corley. “I am looking forward to working with the talented teams at the Healthcare Foundation and SMH, as well as fostering current and new relationships with our supporters. My goal is to build on current achievements and further the impact we can have on the health and well-being of our community.”

Corley holds a Bachelor of Professional Accountancy and Master of Business Administration in Management from Mississippi State University. Prior to joining Ringling College, Corley served as Associate Director for Development for Florida State University Foundation/The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art. She also worked 10 years for Bristol-Myers Squibb in various roles including Senior Hospital Business Manager.

In the community, she has held leadership positions with multiple local and national organizations including Ringling College Library Association, Association of Fundraising Professionals, Junior League of Sarasota and is a member of Sarasota Women’s Alliance.
