It is with great pleasure that we introduce our new Executive Director, Colleen Bragalone, to the Assistance League of Long Beach community. Colleen returns to Long Beach with an impressive portfolio of nonprofit leadership, marking her third role as an Executive Director. She has previously held esteemed positions with the Long Beach Rotary Scholarship Foundation and Friends of Leaps & Bounds Pediatric Therapy. Additionally, she dedicated nine years to the Long Beach Community Foundation as Vice President, where she made significant contributions to the organization’s growth and success.

In her new role at ALLB, Colleen will build on our existing relationships within the local community, propelling our mission to empower and transform the lives of children and adults through our impactful programs. Her extensive experience, spanning over 23 years, equips her with a wealth of knowledge in communications, donor relations, marketing, public relations, community engagement, finance, grant writing, fund development, programming, and organizational and nonprofit management.
