Delaware Valley Legacy Fund Names New Executive Director
The Delaware Valley Legacy Fund (DVLF) recently appointed John Moeller, Jr., as its new executive director. He takes over the reigns from Michael Kendrick who relocated to his home state of New York late last year after only a few short months serving as executive director. Moeller begins his tenure Feb. 1.
“We’re very pleased to have John Moeller join the DVLF and are excited to focus on the future of our organization under his leadership,” explains Mark Mitchell, DVLF’s board president, in a press statement. “John brings a wealth of fundraising knowledge and experience that will certainly further the fund’s mission.”
Moeller has been working in fundraising for more than six years and has been overseeing Planned Parenthood of Bucks County‘s development department as their director of development. He also managed other Planned Parenthood affiliates’ fundraising efforts.
In his new leadership position at DVLF, he’s charged with raising more than $1.3 million.
“I feel that my personal and professional background are a perfect fit for what DVLF needs as we, as an organization, begin to strategize about how to sustain and further the fund’s mission through our fundraising efforts,” says Moeller, in a press statement. “DVLF is a community fund and we need to continue to connect and reconnect with those in our area who are passionate about LGBT issues.”
As an advocate for LGBT health, Moeller has also served on the board of directors of FACT Bucks County, a nonprofit that assists those who are impacted by HIV and AIDS in the region. He’s also currently a committee member and treasure of Our Night Out in Philadelphia and has helped PFLAG of Bucks County raise money for its annual efforts. Moeller graduated from Penn State University with a bachelor’s degree in Women’s Studies and recently obtained his MBA with a focus in nonprofit management from Keller Graduate School of Management.
