Catherine M. DeHart, a long-time resident of Cape May, has joined Northampton Community College (NCC) as a planned and major gifts officer. She will work with other advancement officers and volunteers to raise funds to support Northampton's mission of providing excellent, accessible and comprehensive learning experiences in partnership with the communities the College serves.
DeHart comes to Northampton from Widener University in Chester where she first served as associate director of development and gift planning and then created and managed a planned giving office that contributed to the success of "Taking the Lead," the largest fundraising campaign in Widener's history.
"We are delighted to welcome Catherine to Northampton," says NCC's director of development, Paul Acampora. "She is highly respected in her field and genuinely committed to helping donors make a difference. She is a good fit for Northampton."
DeHart is in the process of completing her doctorate in higher education leadership at Widener University. She earned a master's degree in public administration at Widener and a bachelor of arts in English and communications at Cabrini College.
She is active in the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education and served on the boards of the Partnership for Philanthropic Planning and the Delaware County Estate Planning Council.
She began her work at Northampton on April 26.
