Northumberland United Way Hires New Executive Director

In Local

Northumberland United Way is pleased to announce the appointment of Alicia Vandine as its new Executive Director.

With over twenty years of experience managing not-for-profit organizations, Alicia brings a strong track record of increasing contributions, developing partnerships, and implementing strategic plans. She is dedicated to helping donors and volunteers make a positive impact in their communities.

Alicia’s qualifications are impressive, including accreditation as a Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE) and certificates in Digital and Social Media, Non-Profit Leadership, and Fundraising Management. She also holds a Diploma in Accounting from the Canadian Institute of Business and a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Western Ontario.

In her previous role at Community Care Peterborough, Alicia successfully developed and implemented an integrated fundraising plan, maximizing existing programs and diversifying funding sources. She currently lives in Brighton and previously in Cobourg. That and her decade of experience with Community Care Northumberland equip her with an awareness of the culture and needs of the entire Northumberland area.

Alicia’s expertise in recruiting volunteers and developing partnerships will ensure that Northumberland United Way continues to have a strong and recognized presence as a catalyst for change in the community. She will officially join the team on January 22, and the organization looks forward to engaging with current partners while building new relationships.

The Board of Directors extends their appreciation to Maggie Darling for her role as Acting Executive Director during the interim period. Under Maggie’s leadership, the entire team made significant contributions to the ongoing success of Northumberland United Way during a challenging time. We sincerely thank them for their unwavering passion and dedication. Maggie will now transition back to her previous role as Director of Communications & Impact.

This appointment marks an exciting milestone for Northumberland United Way, as the dynamic team looks ahead to 2024 and beyond. The Board is confident in Alicia’s ability to lead the organization towards an even more impactful future.
