The Dustin Johnson Foundation is pleased to introduce Ashleigh Alcorn as its new executive director.
Ashleigh brings a wealth of fundraising expertise and experience at major universities to her new role. She has served previously as development officer with the Tiger Athletic Foundation at Louisiana State University, assistant director of the Red Raider Club at Texas Tech University, and director of major gifts at Coastal Carolina University.
With the Dustin Johnson Foundation, Ashleigh’s top priority is to broaden the impact the longtime world No. 1 golfer has on junior golfers through his charitable organization.
“We’re excited to have Ashleigh on board to bring Dustin’s charitable efforts to a whole new level,” says Allen Terrell, Dustin Johnson Foundation vice president. “Her track record of development success at three major universities will go a long way toward making the Foundation one of golf’s leading vehicles for getting more youth involvement in the game.”
“I’ve known Dustin and Allen for a long time now, and in addition to their obvious talent, they’re two of the most generous and humble individuals you’ll ever meet,” says Ashleigh. “I’m incredibly thankful to get to play a small part in the impact made through the Dustin Johnson Foundation.”
A former professional soccer player for eight seasons in the United States, Australia, Norway, and Sweden, Ashleigh is currently pursuing her Ph.D. in Leadership and Ethics from Texas Tech University. She has a master’s degree in Sports Leadership from Northeastern University and a bachelor’s degree in Communication. Her past and current pursuits in the athletics realm give her valuable perspective in running the Foundation’s day-to-day operations.
“Sports were a huge part of my childhood and personal development. I would not have had the incredible opportunities I’ve had in my life if it weren’t for playing sports,” says Ashleigh. “I most look forward to helping create opportunities for aspiring golfers to access the top level coaching, facilities, and tournaments through the Dustin Johnson Foundation’s generosity.”
