Cedar Community Welcomes New Philanthropy Director
Cedar Community in West Bend, Wis., is pleased to welcome Jennifer Zaskowski as philanthropy director. Zaskowski has a bachelor’s degree in health care administration from Concordia University. She has more than 25 years in the health care field with an extensive background in healthcare administration and business and non-profit development.
Her past experience includes leadership and organization in development and fundraising initiatives — identifying, cultivating, and soliciting financial gifts at all levels in annual and capital campaigns; collaborating with team leadership to ensure strong community impact and support; over 10 years of grant writing experience; relationship management; strong communication skills; and budgeting skills to perform effective fundraising initiatives.
“When I was called back to serve in the community I live in, I didn’t have to think twice,” said Zaskowski. “I am honored to walk alongside a team of dynamic leaders, dedicated team members, and invested community stakeholders. In partnership, I am eager to help weave the fabric of servant leadership, as it truly takes a village. I look forward to pausing, and taking the time to listen to residents stories and learn from their experiences. As individuals focus on writing their next chapter, I am humbled to help others recognize the needs of today, tomorrow, and the future of our friends and neighbors not only at Cedar Community but our community as a whole.”
As philanthropy director at Cedar Community, Zaskowski will work with the vice president of development to strategize and execute a comprehensive and diversified philanthropy plan that promotes mission achievement and financial sustainability of Cedar Community.
“Jenny is a well-respected and accomplished professional — we are fortunate to welcome her as director of philanthropy,” said Sara Malchow, vice president of development. “Her commitment to community, her love of aging services, and her professional acumen in the fundraising arena will make her a strong champion for Cedar Community.”
