Luke Driscoll
Managing Director @CCS Fundraising
Since 1991, Luke Driscoll has spent his entire professional career at CCS and is one of the firm’s partners tasked with overseeing the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast regions of the United States. He has assisted a wide range of organizations across the U.S., as well as the UK and Bermuda. Luke manages the CCS offices in Washington, DC while advising national and regional nonprofits and supervising a myriad of client engagements. Luke’s inquisitive nature originally drew him to CCS and that instinct keeps him engaged in his work today. Although he has significant experience in the faith-based, human services, and association sectors, Luke enjoys the wide variety of clients the firm serves. “On any given day, I could be working with engineers, physicians, clergy, or school parents,” he says. “There aren’t many people who are able to essentially ‘change channels’ and be in four or five very different environments in the same day in any line of work.

Aly Mennuti
Assistant Vice President @CCS Fundraising
Aly’s dual passions for philanthropy and politics guided her in her early professional career to serve in politics. Her college graduation coincided with the 2000 election cycle, which led to her joining the League of Women Voters as a Program Coordinator. After her stint in politics, Aly joined CCS and helped both local and national non-profits achieve their goals by launching capital campaigns, recruiting and managing volunteers, coordinating events, and a proven record of increasing levels of annual giving and major gifts. Aly is currently working with the American College of Cardiology (ACC) to implement and execute a $10 million capital campaign to fund programmatic efforts in diversity and inclusion, leadership development and global health disparities in care. Prior to the ACC, Aly successfully completed a $5,000,000 Capital Campaign for Saint Agnes Catholic Church in Arlington, Virginia to raise funds for a renovation and restoration project for the church and school.
