Melanie N. Moore Elected to Planned Giving Council’s Board of Directors
June 10, 2011—Melanie N. Moore, MLS, Associate Vice President of Philanthropy and Community Relations, was elected to the board of directors of the Planned Giving Council of NH & VT (PGC) at its annual meeting on June 3.
The PGC is a regional organization for professionals, from both the non-profit and for-profit sectors, whose work includes facilitating and administering planned gifts. Planned gifts involve an arrangement between a donor and an organization and are often in the form of a bequest through a person's final will. PGS works to encourage responsible charitable gift planning by providing educational opportunities of charitable institutions and their gift planning officers, independent fundraising consultants, attorneys, accountants, financial planners, and life insurance agents.
“I look forward to working with other board members to continue bringing quality programming to our members while also raising awareness of the enduring value of this type of charitable giving,” states Moore. “Providing for the future of a nonprofit organization that you have cherished and supported in your lifetime can be one of the most powerful legacies you can leave.”
Moore joined APD in 2006 and has been responsible for supporting APD’s growth through charitable support, building networks within the community, and directing the hospital’s marketing efforts and volunteer services program. Prior to joining APD, she served as Director of Development at Mount Ascutney Hospital and Health Center, and held several positions at Dartmouth College. Moore holds a BA from the University of Texas, Austin, and her Master’s in Library Science from the University of Iowa.
The appointment to the PGC Board of Directors comes at a crucial time in fundraising for APD. “The planned renovation of APD will be gearing up as a communitywide effort.” adds Moore, “Securing gifts for this effort and our future will be essential to the successful implementation of our vision.”
