The Opportunity Council announced and welcomed Katie Rose to the agency this month in a newly created fund development manager position.

Katie brings more than 10 years of experience to this position and has worked in development throughout the Pacific Northwest. As the new fund development manager at the Opportunity Council, Katie will work to expand community support for the agency.

“All of the work we do is allied with our community—from clients and customers, to volunteers and supporters, donors and partnered organizations,” said Greg Winter, Opportunity Council executive director. “Adding Katie to our team energizes our commitment to all those invested in making just and equitable communities a reality for everyone.”

Katie will be responsible for developing agency fundraising strategies, including working with local businesses and individuals from all walks of life and providing opportunities to support the services Opportunity Council offers in Whatcom, Island, San Juan, Skagit and Snohomish Counties.
