Staff Interview: Susan Wayman, Fundraiser Coordinator

Posted on 14. Jun, 2012 by

What is you current role in the office?

I am the Fundraiser Coordinator.

Can you describe some of your day-to-day work in the office?

I have developed the organization’s fundraising plan, I research major donors, train the staff about fundraising, plan and produce fundraising events, organize the volunteer program, and distribute fundraising material.

Can you describe a project or case that you are currently working on or recently finished?

Last April I produced a fundraising event called Yes In My Back Yard at the Bayou Beer Garden. I thought up the idea, invited people to the event and found volunteers to work the event.

Something interesting about you that most people do not know?

I managed Navy Pier in Chicago for ten years.

What is you favorite event or festival in New Orleans?

The Satchmo Club Strut, it is always on Louis Armstrong’s birthday in August and it celebrates jazz on Frenchman street. It is literally and figuratively the hottest festival in New Orleans. The Strut supports free jazz programs throughout New Orleans and it is almost all local artists, which is always fun.
