DRi Announces MAG America Placed Candidate

Development Resources Inc. (DRiWaterstone) is delighted to announce our placement of Kathryn Duval as MAG America’s Director of Development.

DRiWaterstone worked with MAG America, the U.S. partner organization to the U.K.-based Mines Advisory Group, one of the most significant landmine-clearing organizations in the world. After engaging staff at all levels of the small and tight-knit organization, from the Executive Director to the Development Intern, we designed a search for a fundraiser who could build the first comprehensive individual giving program in the U.S. Within 11 weeks, MAG America’s hire was complete.

Kathryn Duval joined MAG America as Director of Development this summer. Kathryn comes to MAG America with a dual background in fundraising and donor-facing communications. She previously spent four years at the start-up 50CAN, where she worked on a small team to build a comprehensive $4M fundraising program for a grassroots education policy organization. She previously worked on a comprehensive individual giving program at the Chicago Architecture foundation, where she helped double annual revenue.

We extend our enthusiastic congratulations to Kathryn and MAG America. We look forward to their success together.

(DRiWaterstone) is delighted to announce the completion of our most recent partnership with the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation. DRiWaterstone and NRAEF have worked together over the last two years to design an expansion of the fundraising program for the Foundation, which supports an industry that employs 1 in 10 working Americans. As the Foundation has executed its fundraising plans, it engaged DRiWaterstone to lead the search for a Manager of Development and Industry Relations. This search was key to NRAEF’s relationships with corporate partners and donors, who help fund scholarships for students entering the restaurant industry, contribute their expertise at foodservice trainings and competitions, and hire participants of NRAEF’s dynamic programs. Today we congratulate Mary Kate Thayer on becoming NRAEF’s Development and Industry Relations Manager. Mary Kate most recently served as an Account Executive for the Washington Nationals Baseball Club. She generated more than 100 new accounts, secured 7-figure partnerships, and routinely beat her revenue target. Mary Kate previously held a variety of corporate sales roles in sports marketing organizations and brings a wealth of experience in the leisure industry to the National Restaurant Association. We extend our enthusiastic congratulations to Mary Kate and the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation. We look forward to their success together."
