The Charlotte Moran Memorial Fund, a 501c3 organization, has been established to honor the legacy of long-time women’s soccer advocate, Charlotte Moran, who lost her battle to pancreatic cancer in May 2009 after heroically battling the disease for nearly two years.

Charlotte had been involved in soccer for more than 20 years, beginning at the grassroots level as a team manager through roles at regional and national levels.  In addition to her leadership roles as the state level, she also served as the US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program Girls Region I Administrator for a number of years as well as the US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program National ODP Girls Chair.
