Dear All,

It is with great pleasure that I announce Sara Crouse as Head of
Partnerships and Foundation Relations.  As many of you know, Sara has
been working with us for several months in the fundraising area on a
contract basis.  When Sara came to us, we were developing our
fundraising strategy and determining how to staff ourselves to that end.
We are pleased that she is able to become a permanent member of the team
now that our strategy has been developed.

Sara has several years of fundraising experience.  She spent the last 5
years in various positions with Cambridge in America;, the most recent
as Associate Director of Research.  In that role, she identified and
researched donor prospects, worked on cultivation strategy and worked
with volunteer leadership and supporters to advance Major Gifts efforts.

Prior to Cambridge in America, Sara worked for RKO PIctures and
TransPerfect Translations.  Sara also managed special events for the
Guggenheim Museum in New York.

She holds an M.A. from NYU and a B.A from Georgetown University.

Please join me in welcoming Sara to the Wikimedia Foundation.
