Lethbridge Family Services (LFS) is excited to announce a new member of the family. In an effort to ensure the continued growth and program delivery of the organization, a new position has been added. The position of Fund Development Director is being created to be responsible for finding new revenue for the organization through partnerships, grants, and long term capital planning.
“As an organization, we have done really well at building our programs and services with the existing contract and grant money and partnerships that we have nourished since 1910. However, for us to take the next step and ensure we can continue to deliver new programming and operate at the level needed by our clients and community we decided to have someone on staff that could focus on finding new revenue sources.”-Sonny Zgurski, Interim CEO states.
The newest addition to the Lethbridge Family Services team is Melody Garner. With a background in a variety of industries including not for profit, hospitality, and residential construction plus her strong community ties to numerous organizations, it seemed a natural fit. As a home grown local who graduated from the U of L with a Management degree, she appreciates the
community in Southern Alberta.
“I am really excited to be the latest addition at Lethbridge Family Services. The amount of programs, community support, and value this organization brings to Southern Alberta is amazing and something to be proud of. “- Melody Garner, Fund Development Director, “I am looking forward to spreading the message and finding organizations that appreciate the value LFS brings to the community to partner with.”
