People Working Cooperatively names new Development Manager

After being with People Working Cooperatively (PWC) for two years as Volunteer Program Manager, Bill Hitch has been named the non-profit organization’s new Development Manager.

In the new position Hitch will be tasked with developing “planned giving” and donor strategies for the non-profit while also working to secure sponsorships for the PWC’s three major fundraising events – Oscar Night, Repair Affair, and Prepare Affair. In 2009, PWC received more than $143,000 in charitable contributions.

“Having served as the executive director for another local non-profit, he has the knowledge and experience to help PWC grow and expand services throughout Ohio and Northern Kentucky,” said Chris Owens, PWC’s Director of Development.

Hitch’s previous position as Volunteer Program Manager will be filled by Sara Bourgeois who has been with PWC for nearly four years, and will now oversee dozens of volunteers each day and thousands for the organizations special events.
