Long Beach Public Library Foundation

Welcome Erica Bradley!

Kate Azar’s first step as the new Executive Director earlier this year was to hire a new Director of Development, Erica Bradley. Erica, a graduate of UC San Diego, has been a development professional for 13 years, most notably serving eight years on behalf of Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA. Her career reflects a commitment to children’s causes and education. As a resident of Long Beach, she is eager to improve resources for the diverse families of her community.

Erica has already been an instrumental part of the work of the Foundation this past year, helping us triple our grant activity over the year before, and taking the lead on our annual fundraising gala, Grape Expectations, over the summer. If you have questions about planned giving, be sure to reach out to her at our offices.
