Please join us in welcoming our new Development Director, Marianne Back! Marianne comes to us with 8 years of fundraising, events and public relations skills. At her most recent role as Development Director for the United Way of the Mid-Willamette Valley, she raised $1.4 million in revenue through corporate, government, foundation, and individual support and an additional $200,000 through other fundraising products, vehicles, and events! She earned a BA in Communications: Public Relations from the University of West Florida and is a certified grant writer as well.
Yes, she has the fundraising “chops” that we seek, and even more importantly, she has a strong connection to Store to Door’s mission. Marianne said, “Store to Door serves a demographic that is close to my heart. Working to ensure that the elderly and disabled live a quality life is precious to me on a personal level.” Marianne worked closely alongside the Council on Aging and Covenant Hospice in Florida to provide critical services that keep the elderly and disabled as independent as possible.
