DRi is pleased to announce the placement of a Development Officer for Major Gifts and a Manager of Donor Relations at Carnegie Institution for Science, an institution that is home to researchers working at the cutting edge of their fields.
These searches continued an established partnership between DRi and Carnegie Science, as it continues to build out a robust fundraising team. These new team members will collaborate with other development staff, scientists, and institutional partners to help grow the culture of philanthropy across Carnegie Science, its partners, and donors.
Today we congratulate Lisa Harter on becoming Carnegie Science’s Development Officer for Major Gifts, and Amanda Marcucci for becoming Manager of Donor Relations.
Lisa has worked in fundraising for the past 25 years, starting her career on the west coast before relocating to the D.C. area to work at the Inova Health System Foundation, where she oversaw annual giving, direct mail, and employee giving. For the past 14 years, Lisa has been with the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Services, most recently cultivating major and principal gifts from University donors.
Amanda brings an expertise in donor communications and a passion for problem solving to the Carnegie Science team. Prior to her new role, Amanda specialized in donor communications strategy, working at the International Fund for Animal Welfare for the past year and for six years prior at Impact Communications, a leading fundraising communications firm. She has a multi-faceted communications perspective developed through diverse non-profit projects over the past seven years.
Congratulations to Lisa, Amanda, and Carnegie Science – we look forward to watching the Carnegie Institution for Science continue to flourish.
