‘Catherine served with distinction as Director of Development for Greenwood Music Camp during the crucial period when the Board, having taken over the reins from the founders after their 50-year leadership, decided to launch a major fund drive to build a new performance space.

‘Catherine was fully in charge of all aspects of the campaign, which, originally pegged at a few hundred thousand dollars, eventually weighed in at more than one million dollars. Perhaps more important, this was achieved without compromise to the unique history and reverence which precedes the camp in all discussions concerning it.

‘Catherine understood the tone and mission and personal importance of the camp, and the need for alumni fundraising. She has always been a self-starter, driven and persistent, good on the macro and micro aspects of fund development, and worked well with volunteers. She is respectful of her peers, subordinates, and managers; she writes well, thinks well, is systems oriented, database proficient, and cares about creating, reinforcing, and deepening relationships with donors.’
