Salvation Army of KC Hires Donor Director

Written by Paul R. Kopenkoskey on . Posted in Local

curtisThe Salvation Army of Kent County has named Joseph Curtis as the organization's donor development director.

In his role, Curtis will function as the key fundraiser working with donors, prospects, foundations, corporate partners and other community organizations to raise financial and in-kind donations that will advance the mission of The Salvation Army of Kent County.

"My aspiration is to bring people together through newly discovered resources and act as a catalyst for business leaders eager to help foster positive change. That's my life's calling," Curtis said. "It happens to be what I do for a living."

Curtis, a Grand Rapids native, returns home after spending the last nearly 20 years in development roles in Phoenix. He served as the divisional director of corporate relations for The Salvation Army's Southwest Division for the last year. Prior to joining The Salvation Army, Curtis spent 17 years with the Boy Scouts of America at its Grand Canyon Council, operating as the chief operating officer, director of development and chief diversity officer.

A 1999 graduate of Grand Valley State University, Curtis also helped the Boy Scouts of America's Gerald R. Ford Council with its fundraising and recruiting efforts for two years before moving to the desert.
