My guest for this episode is Joanne Oppelt.
Joanne is the principal of Joanne Oppelt Consulting and a seasoned rainmaker with a distinguished track record of success. During her twenty-five-plus years working in the nonprofit arena, she built successful fundraising departments at every stop, helping her organizations grow capacity and more effectively fulfill their missions.
She has held positions from grant writer to executive director at several nonprofits including Community Access Unlimited, Family to Family Network of New Jersey, March of Dimes Central, Prevent Child Abuse, and Maternal and Family Health Services. Her extensive background in a variety of work roles and organizations enables her to understand the realities and challenges nonprofit practitioners face–both internally and externally. Her success at every stop positions her to help any nonprofit, whether through her books or consulting practice, turn around its struggling fundraising operations.
Joanne is the author of four books and co-author of nine. She has taught at Kean University as an Adjunct Professor in its graduate program. She is also a sought-after speaker and presenter.
Joanne holds a master’s degree in health administration from Wilkes University, where she graduated with distinction.
Joanne and I discuss what it’s like for an executive director working with a development director and vice versa. Joanne has worn both hats and shares her perspectives from both.
