At this year's National Philanthropy Day luncheon, Carol DeMoulin will be honored with the Robert A. Clinger Outstanding Fundraising Professional Award. This award is given to an outstanding individual fundraising professional who practices his/her profession in an exemplary manner.
The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Rochester, NY is a well-known in our community for the support it provides to families with ill or injured children. In the six years of Carol’s leadership, the agency has increased its visibility in the community with growth in social media presence, media coverage and brand recognition.
Carol began her 33-year career in fundraising after earning her M.A. from Syracuse University. Since joining the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Rochester as president in 2010, Carol has helped to grow the agency’s funds, visibility, and programs. From a fundraising aspect, Carol has increased the profits from the annual Red Tie Gala by more than 40%. She established a leadership donor recognition program, the Pillar Society, in 2011. She grew the RMHC Household Sale to be held twice a year, earning revenue growth year after year.
Carol has also helped to expand the partnership with the Golisano Children’s Hospital. Innovative programs include a Meal Voucher Program, a day pass program and the opening of the Family Room at the new Golisano Children’s Hospital in 2015.
Carol is committed to the fundraising profession. She has been an active member of the Association for Fundraising Professions since the 1980 and has mentored new members of the group. Throughout her AFP membership, she has served in many leadership roles, including Board member, Conference Chair, Professional Advancement Chair and President.
Carol’s heart is with the Ronald McDonald House Charities, which she demonstrates every day. She credits her accomplishments to the people she works with, but it is apparent to all of us that Carol’s success is because of the giving and caring person she is.
