Development

The Development team strategically identifies, cultivates and stewards new and existing community relationships in order to provide critical funding, increase public awareness, engage partners, and build long-term, sustainable support for agency programs and services.

Development functions include:

  • Securing monetary gifts from individuals, corporations and private foundations to support programs and services provided by member agencies Northeast Parent & Child Society and Parsons Child & Family Center.
  • Securing in-kind gifts to support holiday activities and unmet program needs.
  • Implementing community events to increase public awareness and raise operational funds.
  • Partnering with corporations and community groups to provide in-kind services the organization would otherwise pay for.
