About the Speakers
Director of Gift Planning
Baltimore Community Foundation
Rosemary has over 25 years of experience in the nonprofit sector in fundraising, donor support, programs and executive leadership. In her current role Rosemary engages advisors, their clients and Foundation donors in philanthropic planning on topics ranging from tax strategies to multi-generational conversations and planned giving. Rosemary has found that regardless of scope of wealth, people often do not believe their lives have made or can make a difference; she enjoys helping her clients see that they can do just that, and that their dreams for the world can come true through the power of their charitable giving. Prior to her work at BCF, Rosemary served in leadership positions with organizations such as Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake, United Way’s 2-1-1 in the Hudson Valley and the American Red Cross in New York and Connecticut, serving as a national trainer with that organization. Rosemary holds a doctorate in Adult Education and Women’s Studies from Syracuse University.
