ASFPM Foundation
Welcomes New Donor Coordinator

Mary Lehman
The ASFPM Foundation welcomes Mary Lehman as its new Donor Coordinator, effective on July 1, 2023.  Mary is replacing George Riedel, who retired the end of June.

Mary is currently a Maryland State Delegate with more than 30 years of experience in communications, writing, editing, and public policy. As an elected official, Mary fully understands the importance of fundraising and serving her constituents, which she will bring to her new role as ASFPM Foundation Donor Coordinator. Importantly, Mary has over 30 years of direct and indirect experience with the National Flood Insurance Program. Responsible floodplain and flood risk management is a passion of hers, and is evidenced in her body of work as a Maryland legislator, including the Climate Ready Floodplain Act of 2023.

In addition to her legislative experience, Mary has fundraised for multiple non-profit organizations, helping to achieve their organizational goals and objectives. She welcomes your ideas for how we can expand our fundraising initiatives so that the Foundation can continue its important work in the floodplain and flood risk management arena. You can contact Mary at or at (240)-691-7470. 

Welcome Mary!
