Kennedy-Donovan Center Announces New Vice President of Development & Public Relations

Foxboro, MA – May 17, 2017 – Aubrey Macfarlane, President & CEO, announced the appointment of Frank Maher as the new Vice President of Development and Public Relations. Frank comes to Kennedy-Donovan Center (KDC) with nearly twenty years of development experience, with a focus on human services.

Frank has dedicated his career working for state, regional and national organizations including the National Kidney Foundation, Easter Seals, and The American Red Cross. Frank has worked successfully with staff, boards, community leaders, corporate partners and has created and implemented several major gift programs, which will be a focus in this role. Having overseen signature events, annual fund operations, grant and foundation programs, several campaigns, as well as major gift programs Frank is excited to represent each of these categories at KDC.

“I am very happy to be part of the KDC team, representing a mission I am passionate about and believe in. 1 in 5 people in the US have a disability. My goal is to provide support for the clients we serve, their families, and our communities,” said Maher.

These are exciting times for KDC with new initiatives on the horizon. In Frank’s role, he will continue to develop on the foundation set forth by our founder, Luella Hennessey Donovan, and fulfill the continuously expanding needs of those who turn to KDC for services.
