Director Of Development
Donors to our mission are passionate in supporting the goal of a cure for the 1 in 13 children living with life-threatening food allergies. They know FASI is a scientific discovery engine, and our work a paradigm shift in how food allergies are understood and addressed.
As Director of Development for the Food Allergy Science Initiative (FASI), Kate Todd has more than 25 years in fundraising and program-development, securing six- and seven-figure gifts in the educational and medical communities.
She oversees FASI’s fundraising efforts, develops the big-picture strategy for all initiatives and builds relationships with individuals and organizations wanting to support the pursuit of a cure for food allergies. Whether donors personally relate to the issue or want to invest in pioneering research, she is dedicated to ensuring they realize the impact, urgency and hope of supporting FASI’s mission. “People give because they want to make a difference.”
Kate’s entrepreneurial approach to fundraising includes establishing nationwide, grassroots, direct marketing campaigns and expanding international funding programs. Her prior work with the Perkins School for the Blind led to the first comprehensive campaign in the institution’s history, transforming the organization’s philanthropic landscape.
