DRi is happy to announce the placement of Tyler Kalogeros-Treschuk as World Food Program-USA’s Director of Individual Giving. As WFP-USA Director of Individual Giving, Tyler will play a significant role in helping millions of hungry individuals around the world.
A returning client, World Food Program USA supports the work of the World Food Programme and its global mission to alleviate hunger. One out of nine people in the world suffer from global hunger, and food insecurity’s destabilizing effects can multiply human suffering exponentially. To combat this, the World Food Programme provides about 80 million people located in 80 countries around the world with food and nutritional assistance every year. A mission with such a large global reach requires robust support. Contributing $20 million annually, WFP USA has played a critical role in the effort to alleviate global hunger. It possesses a diverse foundation of support, and utilizes individual giving, corporate giving, and special events. Additionally, it has utilized partnerships with businesses, the U.S. government, and ordinary Americans. The WFP-USA Director of Individual Giving would have to be a proven relationship builder who could effectively communicate WFP-USA’s mission to major donors.
Tyler’s experience and personality made him the ideal choice for this position. Holding development positions for the entirety of his professional career, he most recently served as the Deputy Director of Development for Food & Water Watch. Food & Water Watch champions healthy food and clean water for all, and through this Tyler was acutely aware of the food scarcity that millions around the world face. He was experienced in communicating this message to donors, and was more than capable of delivering this message at WFP-USA. He previously served as the Director of Philanthropy and Communications at the Charitable Aid Foundation of America, where he regularly interacted with high-profile Fortune 500 companies. This experience would be invaluable as he communicates the mission of WFP-USA to high-worth major donors. Tyler received his B.A. from the University of Maryland, College Park, and his M.B.A. from the University of Maryland, University College.
DRi was pleased to work with World Food Program-USA again and wish both Tyler and WFP luck in their future work.
