Congratulations to ER&D VP of Advancement Betsy Deisroth

DRteamed up with Episcopal Relief & Development to find Betsy Deisroth as their next Vice President of Advancement. Betsy’s prior work and knowledge made her a natural fit for the ER&D VP of Advancement position.

Episcopal Relief & Development has served as the compassionate response of the Episcopal Church to human suffering around the world for over 75 years. Having its origins in assisting refugees fleeing Europe during World War II, ER&D today has a global impact in both providing relief during times of disaster and building up sustainable, flourishing communities. Its core missions involve alleviating hunger, responding to disasters, promoting health, and creating economic opportunities for all. The next ER&D VP of Advancement, who would routinely work with senior leadership and high-level board members, would have to be a confident and organized operations manager. DRidentified Betsy as a capable and enthusiastic fundraising leader who would quickly embrace both the scope of the work and the faith-based environment of ER&D.

Betsy was no stranger to international assistance and development. She had previously served as the Vice President of Advancement for The Hunger Project, a New York City based nonprofit dedicated to alleviating world hunger and poverty though sustainable, community based solutions; several of ER&D’s key values and missions. This was just one segment of Betsy’s 30 plus years of development and fundraising experience. She had previously helped lead a $200 million campaign at the American Friends Service Committee, a Quaker service organization, and she was most recently a fundraising consultant and executive coach, training the next generation of leaders and fundraisers. Betsy earned her Bachelor’s Degree from Skidmore College in NY, graduating with Departmental Honors and as a member of Phi Beta Kappa.

It was a pleasure to work with both Episcopal Relief & Development and Betsy, and DRiWaterstone looks forward to hearing of their global impact and international success stories.
