Originally from Texas, Shultz moved to San Francisco in the mid 1960s. Over a remarkable career spanning more than 50 years, Shultz represented her state and her city at the highest levels, planning and hosting events for Presidents, Popes and international cultural icons. In 2018, she coordinated and oversaw the naming of the street in front of the Fairmont Hotel in honor of longtime friend, and San Francisco’s singing ambassador, “Tony Bennett Way.” During the worst days of COVID, Shultz conceptualized and led a public sing-a-long of Bennett’s iconic “I Left My Heart in San Francisco”, #SingOutSF,  to honor front line workers during the pandemic. Shultz served as President of the Board of the War Memorial Performing Arts Center and a member of the Boards of the San Francisco Symphony, Grace Cathedral, the Commonwealth Club of California, and the San Francisco Ballet.

In memory of Shultz, gifts may be made to the “Charlotte Mailliard Shultz Fund for the Arts” at the San Francisco Foundation at
