Congratulations to Andrew Kerr and the Coast Guard Foundation

DRis pleased to announce the placement of a Regional Director of Philanthropy at the Coast Guard Foundation, an organization that helps active duty service members, Coast Guard veterans, and their families during some of the most trying times in their lives.

Over the last two years, DRhas partnered with the Coast Guard Foundation’s Senior Vice President of Development Brad Sisley and President Susan Ludwig to significantly expand their regional fundraising team. We most recently renewed this partnership with a search for a fundraising leader for the Gulf States region.

Today we congratulate Andrew Kerr on becoming the Coast Guard Foundation’s Regional Director of Philanthropy for the Gulf States.  Across his career, Andrew has achieved success as an entrepreneur, business development professional, and non-profit fundraiser. Andrew most recently served as Major Gift Officer at Rotary International, where he oversaw donor pipeline management and volunteer engagement for a territory of 14 districts, securing some of the region’s largest-ever gifts. He has also served as Director of Development for two relief organizations.

Andrew has a broad knowledge of the Gulf Coast philanthropic market, with a history of work in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas. He looks forward to utilizing his connections to support the Coast Guard Foundation.

We congratulate Andrew and the Coast Guard Foundation—we look forward to seeing their success together.
