A “recovering banker” with a heart for helping, Charley Scarborough brings two careers worth of experience to bear in helping nonprofit organizations reach their fundraising goals for mission effectiveness.

Prior to launching Scarborough & Associates, LLC, Charley served as Chief Philanthropy & Engagement Officer for Mission Capital, a Central Texas nonprofit dedicated to capacity building, leadership training and developing social impact leverage for more than 600 nonprofit members and clients. For fifteen years, he focused on philanthropy for Seton Healthcare Family, leading teams in numerous campaigns, events and grant development efforts to raise over $100M during his tenure – including, as Executive Director of the Seton Fund, the $50M philanthropy campaign for building the new Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas’ Dell Medical School. Prior to Seton, Charley provided planned giving leadership and expertise to a three-state region of hospital foundations for Catholic Healthcare West.

Charley’s nonprofit fundraising experience is balanced by many years’ experience as a trust officer and Certified Financial Planner with major banks and brokerage firms. His relationships and understanding of charitable gift planning with high net worth families continues to be an asset in the nonprofit sector today, while a banker’s attention to performance metrics and measurement drives his work with nonprofits in helping them achieve and report results. As President of Scarborough & Associates, Charley helps nonprofit organizations with effective fundraising strategy, tools and leadership efforts to raise more money.

Outside of fundraising, Charley is a husband to Carolyn, dad to two adult daughters, artist (found object sculpture) and lover of poetry and classic hot rod cars.
