Nancy Jennings, CFRE, has been named CEO of the Women's Caring Program (WCP). She joins WCP on April 11. She most recently served as development director of NEW (Nonprofit Enterprise at Work) in Ann Arbor. She has also held fund development positions at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Detroit, Lutheran Social Services of Michigan and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
WCP, a public foundation, has raised more than $2 million for Michigan children since 1995. Through its signature program, ChildCare Commitment, the group helps working families who are ineligible for state child care assistance, but don't make enough to afford quality, licensed child care and education programs.
"We are thrilled to have the talent and enthusiasm of Nancy at the helm of our team," said Colleen Robar, WCP president. "We want to help even more Michigan families and we're confident she can help make that happen."
"I know the difference that quality childcare has made in the life of my child and have often thought that bringing that level of quality to the lives of more children was something that would pay tremendous dividends to our community," said Nancy. "Now I have the chance to help make that happen."
She is a Wayne State University business school graduate with a degree in marketing. She is a certified fund raising executive and a member of the American Fundraising Professionals.
Nancy and her husband live in Farmington Hills and are the proud parents of five-year-old Naima.
