Environment, People

OGUNQUIT, Maine – The Marginal Way Preservation Fund appointed Catherine Palmer Executive Director of the nonprofit organization, according to board president Paul Breen.

Hired in September 2010 as Development Director, Palmer was put in charge of annual giving, communications and planned giving programs for the 501(c)(3) public charity.

“Her efforts in creating our infrastructure and building public awareness of the need for a Marginal Way Endowment Fund have been outstanding,” Breen said.  "The board has full confidence that she can generate sufficient funds to preserve the Marginal Way for the next generation.  We certainly expect future devastating and damaging storms.”

The Marginal Way Preservation Fund was formed in 2010 with support from local business leaders.  Its mission is to create a protected set of funds, or Endowment, sufficient to generate interest revenue to meet the long-term financial needs of the Marginal Way. 

As Executive Director, Palmer will manage the Fund's day-to-day operations, assist the board with strategic planning and create public relations programs to expand the donor base and attract contributors.

“We will expand our membership program to reach new donors and create naming opportunities for major gifts,” she said.

Before joining the Marginal Way Preservation Fund, Palmer was a grant writer for nonprofit organizations.  She lives in Saco, Maine.
