Introducing the Next WFP-USA Director of Individual Giving

DRis happy to announce the placement of Tyler Kalogeros-Treschuk as World Food Program-USA’s Director of Individual Giving. As WFP-USA Director of Individual Giving, Tyler will play a significant role in helping millions of hungry individuals around the world.

A returning clientWorld Food Program USA supports the work of the World Food Programme and its global mission to alleviate hunger. One out of nine people in the world suffer from global hunger, and food insecurity’s destabilizing effects can multiply human suffering exponentially. To combat this, the World Food Programme provides about 80 million people located in 80 countries around the world with food and nutritional assistance every year. A mission with such a large global reach requires robust support. Contributing $20 million annually, WFP USA has played a critical role in the effort to alleviate global hunger. It possesses a diverse foundation of support, and utilizes individual giving, corporate giving, and special events. Additionally, it has utilized partnerships with businesses, the U.S. government, and ordinary Americans. The WFP-USA Director of Individual Giving would have to be a proven relationship builder who could effectively communicate WFP-USA’s mission to major donors.

Tyler’s experience and personality made him the ideal choice for this position. Holding development positions for the entirety of his professional career, he most recently served as the Deputy Director of Development for Food & Water Watch. Food & Water Watch champions healthy food and clean water for all, and through this Tyler was acutely aware of the food scarcity that millions around the world face. He was experienced in communicating this message to donors, and was more than capable of delivering this message at WFP-USA. He previously served as the Director of Philanthropy and Communications at the Charitable Aid Foundation of America, where he regularly interacted with high-profile Fortune 500 companies. This experience would be invaluable as he communicates the mission of WFP-USA to high-worth major donors. Tyler received his B.A. from the University of Maryland, College Park, and his M.B.A. from the University of Maryland, University College.

DRiWaterstone was pleased to work with World Food Program-USA  again and wish both Tyler and WFP luck in their future work.

A 36 year veteran of the Marines, General Ruark will continue his commitment to Marines and their families for the foreseeable future. The Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation was established in 1962 to honor Marines by educating their children. MCSF is the oldest and largest provider of need-based scholarships to military children, and the only scholarship program awarding 100% of all eligible applicants. In its over 50 year history, it has awarded more than 40,000 scholarships valued at nearly $120 million. The next MCSF CEO would have to be just as innovative as he/she was dedicated. In the next decade alone, more than 100,000 children of Marines will graduate high school, and face ever-increasing costs of higher education. Applicants have grown more than 5% every year for the past decade, and a potential application growth rate of 7% is expected over the next 5 years. To meet this growing need, the next MCSF CEO would have to lead the development, communications, and events team in marshaling support from every possible opportunity. From many qualified and impressive candidates, General Ruark emerged as the candidate who's leadership, innovation, and passion would expertly guide the Foundation during this critical time. He most recently served as the Military Director to the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness. In this role, he oversaw a global staff of over 32,000 civilians, military personnel, and contractors. This role, along with General Ruark's service as Director of Logistics for the Joint Staff and US Central Command, gave him an unmatched mastery of operational functions that the MCSF CEO would need to provide overall strategic guidance to the Foundation's staff and finances. General Ruark received his B.S. from Miami University and his Masters of Military Studies from the Marine Corps University. DRwas proud to work with the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation and is eager to see the impact that General Ruark and the Foundation have on military families across the country."
