DRi is pleased to announce the placement of a Director of Development at the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, an organization founded in 1970 to support newly-elected Black officials which quickly evolved into America’s Black think tank.
DRi partnered with the Joint Center to find a development leader to establish comprehensive fundraising strategies to achieve the Center’s-short- and long-term goals. The Director plays a key role in fostering direct relationships with individuals, corporations, and foundations, and helps to create the Center’s strategic plan.
Today we congratulate Roslyn Hannibal-Booker on becoming the Joint Center’s Director of Development. Roslyn has nearly two decades of development experience, with an emphasis on frontline fundraising. Most recently, she was Director of Development at the Immune Deficiency Foundation, where her responsibilities include both fundraising solicitations and donor relations. Much of her career has been fundraising for advocacy organizations, and prior to becoming a fundraiser, she had a career in social work focusing on disenfranchised individuals.
Congratulations to Roslyn and the Joint Center—we look forward to seeing their success together.
