What is your role at TLC?: As the Development Manager, I work with the development and communications team to accelerate TLC’s strategic growth in the Annual Fund and special campaigns by enrolling new members, enhancing donor stewardship and events, as well as assisting corporate partners, Earth Share NC contributors, and managing the TLC donor database, The Raiser’s Edge NXT, as well as the TLC Stewards monthly donor program.
Favorite TLC Preserve?: The Irvin Nature Preserve because even though it’s not far from the Chapel Hill / Carrboro city centers the mix use of forest and farm land provide a pristine, quiet preserve, but also a working farm and environmental education center on site.
Casey started at TLC in July 2018. Originally from Colchester, Vermont, Casey brings 9 years of fundraising experience working with donors, managing volunteers, campaigns, events, and databases. Casey’s focus on human rights and humanitarian organizations allowed her the opportunity to attend two United Nations forums – The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Poznan, Poland in 2008, and the 8th Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues in New York, NY in 2009. Casey has a master’s degree in Nonprofit Management with a concentration in Human Services from Northeastern University, and a bachelor’s degree in Political Science with a minor in Sociology from SUNY Plattsburgh.
Prior to joining TLC, Casey worked for the Organization for Tropical Studies, an international organization located in the U.S., Costa Rica, and South Africa with four remote research stations, as a key member of the development department raising money to provide leadership in education, research, and the responsible use of natural resources in the tropics.
