Congratulations to Carnegie Science’s Senior Manager of Individual Giving

DRi is pleased to announce the placement of Milan Karol as Carnegie Science’s Senior Manager of Individual Giving. Milan will play a key role in Carnegie’s new, robust fundraising program.

The Carnegie Institution for Science has been a staple of scientific research for over 100 years. First founded in 1902 with an endowment from Andrew Carnegie, researchers from the entire spectrum of scientific fields have been allowed to independently carry out their work here, beholden to only discovery instead of outside donors. Andrew Carnegie’s sizable endowment has supported the work of the Institution since its establishment, but in the present day when scientific discovery knows no bounds, additional resources can produce unlimited gains for researchers. Under the direction of President Matthew Scott, Carnegie Science set about recruiting multiple candidates to create a dedicated development program in order to create a best-in-class fundraising team that is comparable to its world-class research teams. DRi has helped multiple non-profits build their development programs from the ground up, and was eager to find the right candidates that could do the same at Carnegie. It became clear that Milan would be more than capable of enticing donors with Carnegie’s groundbreaking research.

As Carnegie Science’s Senior Manager, Milan will be a key player in expanding the Institution’s research and work. His commitment to scientific endeavors was unquestionable; he had previously served as a development professional at the Robert Packard Center for ALS Research at Johns Hopkins University. The rapport Milan built there with senior medical researchers and the insights he gained from seeing scientific progress first-hand was a clear indication that he would be able to translate the Carnegie Institution’s continued advances in scientific discovery into continuous support from donors.

DRi wishes Milan and Carnegie Science luck as they continue to produce unprecedented scientific discoveries for the benefit of all of humanity.

Established with Andrew Carnegie’s substantial $1 billion endowment, the Carnegie Institution for Science has long been at the forefront of scientific discovery. 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. A strong base of foundation support is critical for any private fundraising program. DRidentified Kristen as an ideal candidate who could unlock the potential of foundations as Carnegie Science's Senior Manager of Foundation Relations. She spent the previous 4 years at the University of Maryland's A. James Clark School of Engineering, building relationships with both foundations and corporations. In this capacity, she worked closely with researchers and professors to communicate their needs and priorities, and this invaluable experience would be needed as she works with the trailblazing scientists at the Carnegie Institute. Her experience authoring highly technical proposals, involving chemical and biomolecular engineering, energy, and cybersecurity, will be critical as she recruits support for the work of Carnegie scientists. Kristen received her B.A. in Sociology from St. Mary's College of Maryland and her M.S. in Landscape/Sustainable Design from The George Washington University. DRwas pleased to partner with the Carnegie Institution for Science and wishes Kristen and all their new development officers the best of luck in their scientific endeavors."
