Development Resources Inc. (DRi) is delighted to announce the completion of our most recent partnership with the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation.

DRi and NRAEF have worked together over the last two years to design an expansion of the fundraising program for the Foundation, which supports an industry that employs 1 in 10 working Americans. As the Foundation has executed its fundraising plans, it engaged DRi to lead the search for a Manager of Development and Industry Relations. This search was key to NRAEF’s relationships with corporate partners and donors, who help fund scholarships for students entering the restaurant industry, contribute their expertise at foodservice trainings and competitions, and hire participants of NRAEF’s dynamic programs.

Today we congratulate Mary Kate Thayer on becoming NRAEF’s Development and Industry Relations Manager. Mary Kate most recently served as an Account Executive for the Washington Nationals Baseball Club. She generated more than 100 new accounts, secured 7-figure partnerships, and routinely beat her revenue target. Mary Kate previously held a variety of corporate sales roles in sports marketing organizations and brings a wealth of experience in the leisure industry to the National Restaurant Association.

We extend our enthusiastic congratulations to Mary Kate and the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation. We look forward to their success together.

(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."
