Part of the Solution (POTS) is pleased to welcome Kelly Garvey as its new Director of Development. In her new role, Kelly will design and implement a comprehensive fundraising strategy aimed at securing diverse revenue streams to meet the organization’s annual $8M operating needs and future growth goals.
Reporting to Executive Director Christina Hanson and serving as a member of the leadership team, Kelly will lead a team of five to meet and grow the organization’s fundraising goals in line with its growing program offerings. Kelly will also work closely with the Board of Directors to identify and strategically engage potential funders to support organizational needs and further POTS’ mission. In particular, Kelly will focus on building a pipeline of individual donors and completing a campaign for capital expansion.
Kelly brings over 20 years of experience in the nonprofit sector to POTS, both in development and programs. Most recently, Kelly served as the Director of Individual Giving at Feeding Westchester, where she designed and built a mid-level giving program in the wake of an influx of donors from the COVID-19 pandemic. Earlier in her career, Kelly held leadership roles at a variety of nonprofits including Columbia Business School, Metro United Way of Louisville, and Neighborhood House. Additionally, Kelly has held multiple roles at City Harvest including Major Gifts Officer, and earlier in her career, Manager of Community Partnerships.
