Director of Development
Joined RCN in July 2015 to oversee its fundraising & marketing efforts. His work focuses on the $1.2M Celebrating Kids, Changing Lives capital campaign, along with the Annual Children’s Fund and special events including the Mad Hatter Tea Party. Jeff also directs RCN marketing outreach including publications, social media, the website, and traditional media outlets. During his 25 years in the not-for-profit arena, Jeff has advocated for education on all levels, from Pre-K to doctoral programs. He has employed his donor-centered philosophy as the executive director of the Finger Lakes and Cayuga Community colleges’ foundations, and as a nonprofit consultant. Jeff most enjoys learning from the people who have made RCN a leading voice for children in Greater Rochester: donors, community leaders, parents, current and former “RCN kids,” teachers & staff (both past and present), and all those who have dedicated their lives to the children under RCN’s care.
