Development Resources Inc. (DRi) is delighted to announce the completion of our search for Evidence Action’s Director of Global Fundraising and Communications.
DRi worked with Evidence Action as it moved into its fifth year in business and built systems to make its significant early successes sustainable. We designed a search for the first professional fundraiser to join the organization’s senior team and steered the search through a major leadership transition as Evidence Action continued to grow. The search focused on entrepreneurial leaders who could work with a Board, CEO, and global team of program leaders on a program that combines everything from relationships with charity aggregators to major donor outreach.
Today we congratulate David Chalfant on becoming Evidence Action’s Director of Global Fundraising and Communications. In his most recent fundraising role, David increased fundraising at all levels at the international microfinance organization FINCA International. He previously created and strengthened fundraising initiatives in a wide range of non-profits, including local D.C. healthcare organization Whitman Walker Health and the civil rights organization Human Rights Campaign. Between these roles, David also oversaw sales and marketing at a dot-com services firm.
We extend our enthusiastic congratulations to David and Evidence Action. We look forward to their success together.
