The Dunham School welcomes Kelly DeRossette as Director of Annual Giving and Constituent Relations.
In this role, Kelly will manage the Dunham Annual Giving Campaign, recruit and direct an active volunteer base for fundraising events such as Jubilee and Carnival, and serve as liaison for the school's volunteer organizations, including the Alumni Association, Dunham Parents Association, Grandparents Association, Men’s Club, and Pray Dunham. As a member of the school’s advancement team, she will work closely with Advancement Director Kinch Cato to plan and implement strategic fundraising initiatives for the school.
Kelly most recently served as Director of Donor Relations and Stewardship for Tiger Athletic Foundation, where she also served as Director of Operations and Services and Coordinator of Special Events and Public Relations during her eight-year tenure.
“I am excited to have Kelly join our advancement staff,” says Kinch. “She brings a tremendous amount of experience from her work with the Tiger Athletic Foundation. I know our Dunham family will welcome her warmly and support her work with annual giving and constituent relations.”
Kelly holds a Master of Science in Sports Administration and a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communications from Louisiana State University. She and her husband, Raymond, are the parents of two boys, Dalton and Mason, who will attend Dunham in the fall.
“Raymond and I are thrilled to be joining the Dunham family. We are so excited and blessed that our boys will be educated in such a wonderful environment and surrounded by such a godly support system. I am honored to have the opportunity to join the staff and bring my skill sets to assist in making the Dunham experience the best it can be,” Kelly said.
