INDIAN RIVER COUNTY - Nancy McCurry was hired as campaign director of the United Way of Indian River County.
Mrs. McCurry has an extensive background in nonprofit development, most recently with the Laconia Area Community Land Trust in New Hampshire.
She has previous experience with United Way as a member of the steering committee for the financial stability partnership and as a loaned executive.
Mrs. McCurry has a broad background in nonprofit resource development having expanded and fostered the Laconia Land Trust into an award-winning leader in its region.
The announcement comes on the heels of the promotion of Michelle Malyn as chief development officer. Mrs. Malyn recently led the organization as director of gift planning and spearheaded the formation of a separate foundation geared at creating a $10 million endowment.
The shift in duties includes close oversight of the annual campaign but remains inclusive of her duties toward building United Way's endowment.
"With the addition of Nancy to our staff our campaign team is complete and reflective of this organizations goal to sustain, foster and champion our partner agencies as we work on advancing the common good in this community," said Michael Kint, CEO.
Ms. McCurry will be responsible for the organization's annual campaign, which last year raised $2.4 million in support of health and human service agencies in Indian River County.
She will direct the agency's extensive volunteer campaign cabinet and will work in tandem with the co-chairs for this year's campaign, Amy and Bob Brunjes.
United Way of Indian River County board of directors also announced its investment of $1,757,021 in advancing the common good in the community.
"The goal of our community investment process, and ultimately, in all the work we do throughout the year, is to promote and foster creative programs that produce measurable results in the lives of those in need," said Mr. Kint.
