November 15, we celebrate Development and Philanthropy professionals across the globe!
It is a time to honor these organized and fundraising professionals providing support for sustaining and enhancing many nonprofit organizations.
Our Director of Development is responsible for the overall development, implementation and coordination of the fund raising and development activities of the organization. The Director of Development works with and through the appropriate committees of the Board for all fundraising programs including public relations activities designed to enhance and support the overall mission of Harbor Hospice.
We love our Director of Development. Thank you for all you do every day!
