Greetings! It is both an honor and privilege to be joining the North Dakota Humanities Council as the Development Officer! In order to ensure our humanities programs continue to flourish throughout North Dakota, I will be in charge of designing and implementing fundraising and development strategies. I have always had a passion for learning, whether it is researching past historical events, analyzing what is going on in the world right now, or predicting what is going to happen in the future. The Humanities Council offers many opportunities to learn and develop, both personally and through community. I want to ensure that we are able to give people in North Dakota the opportunity to study languages, literature, history, film, civics, philosophy, religion, and the arts. Through strategic planning, creating relationships with both old and new donors, as well as corporations, I am confident that we will be able to continue to foster creativity and knowledge of all kinds. Before joining the North Dakota Humanities Council, I worked with several non-profits to create and implement fundraising programs throughout the United States. Outside of fundraising, I am an active volunteer and currently serve on the board for the North Dakota Human Rights Coalition. I received my Bachelors of Science from the University of Mary, Bismarck, ND and went on to pursue a Master of Public Administration from Hamline University, St. Paul, MN. I am looking forward to being back in the state and a part of this organization! Stacy Schaffer Development Officer
