DRiWaterstone is pleased to announce our placement of the Director of Major Gifts at FINCA International, a global microfinance network that provides financial services to 2.3 million clients across 20 countries.
DRiWaterstone’s Senior Consultant Jeff Johnson assisted FINCA International senior leadership team in the process of designing a search that would identify a Director of Major Gifts. The partnership identified candidates that would create an innovative individual fundraising program to engage donors through traditional annual and planned giving. Jeff led the search with three main goals in finding the candidate are: (1) Grow major donor relationship to sustainability to increase annual revenue; (2) Personally solicit and steward a diverse range of funding agreements; and (3) Lead and mentor the major gifts team.
Today we congratulate Elizabeth Tucker on becoming FINCA International Director of Major Gifts.

Elizabeth previously served as the Director of Philanthropy & Engagement at the Grameen Foundation, where she managed strategic corporate partnerships and grew partner-base employee engagements. Elizabeth was also the Manager of Individual Philanthropy at the Grameen Foundation, where she retained and grew donor base in the midst of major organizational transitions.
