Congratulations to Carnegie Science’s Manager of Donor Relations Natalie Champ

DRiWaterstone is pleased to announce the placement of Natalie Champ as Carnegie Science’s Manager of Donor Relations. Natalie will serve an integral role in Carnegie Science’s new comprehensive fundraising program.

The Carnegie Institution for Society lives up to its motto of “to encourage discovery and the application of knowledge to the improvement of humankind.” Established with Andrew Carnegie’s substantial $1 billion endowment, Carnegie Science has long supported independent researchers at the forefront of scientific discovery. These researchers have made contributions to everything from the discovery of dark matter to the development of Pyrex glass. Free from external funding’s pressures or interests, Carnegie scientists are able to pursue their own initiatives and discoveries.

Even Andrew Carnegie himself could not have imagined the extent of his institution’s discovery in its over 100 year existence. Today, Carnegie scientists are leaders in the fields of astronomy, Earth and planetary sciences, genetics and developmental biology, global ecology, materials science, and plant biology. The institution’s scientific potential will soon outpace and outgrow Carnegie’s endowment. Under the direction of President Matthew P. Scott, the institution resolved to create a best-in-class fundraising program that would match and sustain its world-class research.

Matching groundbreaking scientific work being no small task, DRknew that Carnegie Science’s Manager of Donor Relations would have to have the same trailblazing attitude as its research. Natalie emerged as the ideal person who could bring Carnegie Science’s fundraising, and by extension its research, to the next level. Her ability to comprehend and translate the intricacies of conservation to donors within The Wilderness Society was a clear signal that she could use the complexities of scientific research at Carnegie to engage and enthrall donors. Natalie’s prior experience as a science and math teacher would no doubt aid her ability to communicate scientific priorities to donor audiences. Her inquisitive attitude and questioning nature with colleagues made it clear that she would develop a thorough understanding of Carnegie Science and its work quickly.

We look forward to hearing of Natalie and Carnegie Science’s groundbreaking discoveries in the future.

The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts has served as a cultural beacon in historic Louisville since 1983. Serving as a portal to the vibrant art community in Louisville and Kentucky, The Kentucky Center has made it its mission to ensure that the wonders of the cultural arts is accessible to all. Offering audience members everything from Bluegrass to Bach, The Kentucky Center preserves and promotes the unique history, heritage, and arts of the state for local residents and tourists alike. Bringing the community into the arts, The Kentucky Center also brings the arts directly to communities, leading a nationally-recognized community engagement program in 113 of Kentucky's 120 counties. Partnering with schools and universities to bring the arts to aspiring students, and hospitals and senior centers to bring performances to promote healing, The Kentucky Center's impact extends far beyond its stage seating. With The Kentucky Center being much more than just a performing arts center, DRi knew that the next Kentucky Center VP of Development would have to be just as passionate and creative as the Center is. It was clear that Julie's prior experience and commitment was a perfect match for The Kentucky Center. She had previously served as the Director of Development for the Actors Theatre of Louisville, one of the nation's most revered regional theatres. Julie's appreciation for the arts, along with her being a lifelong resident of Louisville, closely aligned her with the local and community impact that The Kentucky Center offers. Consistently growing the donor base and the revenue of the organizations she served, Julie was the clear choice for expanding The Kentucky Center's already wide reach.  She received her B.A. from Western Kentucky University. We wish Julie and the Kentucky Center much success in their artistic ventures."
