Scott Hartman offers over 20 years of nonprofit, development and planned giving experience. A native of Latrobe, PA, Scott joined The Catholic Foundation in 2002 as the Director of Donor Administration. For the next 11 years, he grew and developed along with the impact of the Foundation. He played an intricate role in moving the Foundation to their current location at the historical landmark of the original Wendy’s restaurant.
In 2013, Scott left his position as Senior Vice President to work at St. Francis DeSales High School where he led the development team and oversaw the first stage of a multi-year modernization project. Under Scott’s guidance, the front of the school was remodeled, a new service road and parking area were installed, and land was acquired for future expansion. In 2017, feeling a call to return to the work that sparked his passion for philanthropy, Scott returned to The Catholic Foundation where he currently serves as the Senior Vice President and Chief Development Officer.
Scott earned his Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Ohio Dominican University and his Master of Business Administration from Ashland University. He is a Certified Fundraising Expert (CFRE) and an expert on planned giving.
Scott enjoys volunteering and giving back. He served as an assistant coach for the girls’ soccer team at St. Francis DeSales from 2015 to 2018 and served on the finance committee at St. Matthias Parish, is a past president of their School Advisory Board, and is a former RCIA teacher there. He has also spent many hours volunteering at St. Paul Parish, St. Francis DeSales High School, and Our Lady of Peace Parish. Scott has also served as a race organizer for the Lennon Loop 5K, and he is currently the Chair of the Board of The Catholic Museum of Art and History in Columbus.
Scott lives in Westerville with his wife, Laura, and their three children where they are parishioners at St. Paul the Apostle Church.
