Scott Dishman, CFRE

Development Director

Scott Dishman is the Development Director for Terra Firma National, responsible for telling the stories of our migrant children and families, and gathering the resources required to accomplish our mission.

In his former life, Scott spent two decades in corporate marketing and brand strategy, eventually serving as the Director of Communications for the $3 billion Michelin consumer brand in the United States. In 2006, he decided to leave the corporate world and work on behalf of children at risk. He’s never looked back.
Scott has advocated and raised funds for programming and capital projects focused on neglected and abused children, foster children, the children of addicted parents, and poor farming families in the Central Plateau of Haiti. He believes that all children deserve a fair and equal shot at health and happiness, with no exceptions.

He has served on the Board of Directors for Fostering Great Ideas, an innovative nonprofit focused on improving the experience of kids in foster care, and Pendleton Place, the Greenville Forward Task Force on Children and Families, and the Association of Fundraising Professionals. He is often called upon to help other nonprofits work through leadership, communication and development issues, and is an enthusiastic champion of the nonprofit sector.

In 2015, Scott was selected to receive the James F. Barker Ethics in Action Award by the Rutland Institute for Ethics at Clemson University. He was the second person to receive the Institute's highest honor.
