Kelly Candotti has joined the Harold E. Eisenberg Foundation as the new Director of Development. Kelly has extensive fundraising experience in healthcare and the arts, and actively volunteers to raise funds for education. The two-pronged mission of the Eisenberg Foundation unites her passion to raise funds to advance cancer research and provide impactful education opportunities for students.
Kelly looks forward to cultivating growth opportunities for the Eisenberg Foundation, building on her past experience in corporate and individual giving while creating new revenue tied to the organization’s successful fundraising event portfolio. Kelly successfully built a corporate fundraising program for the American Cancer Society for their operations throughout the state of Wisconsin in addition to oversight of the largest Relay For Life event in the Midwest. Most recently, she created a Development Department for a long-standing arts organization leading to a robust corporate giving program among a full slate of giving opportunities for the community to support this hub for arts and culture.
“I could not be more grateful for Jamie’s support in finding us the perfect candidate for our Director of Development position. We had been looking for almost a year without success. Evolve Giving Group took the time to really understand our history, needs, culture, and development goals. They were always available for input and advice during our hiring process and they saw it through to the end. We now have an incredible team member whose work is substantially enhancing our fundraising capacity and our impact,” says Executive Director Katie Wales of her work with Evolve. Evolve’s Executive Search Team is proud to have been a part of this match.
