Kentucky’s Nazareth Home announced in mid-September that Carrie Burns has been hired as its new director of development. Burns will lead the organization as it further develops the Nazareth Homes Foundation.
Burns has more than 20 years of nonprofit experience, having held leadership roles with nonprofits Wesley Manor Retirement Community, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s Kentucky chapter, the Kentucky Humane Society and St. Paul United Methodist Church.
Most recently, she served as vice president of development for Wesley Manor. Burns holds a bachelor’s degree in English from Hanover College.
Mary Haynes, president and CEO of Nazareth Home, said Burns adds great leadership to the team, bringing decades of experience and a passion for elder care to the role.
“Carrie comes to this role with a commitment to serve and a gift of cultivating donor relationships,” Haynes said. “We’re very excited to have Carrie on our team. Our board and leadership are excited to have her join Nazareth Home and know that her longstanding passion for working in the nonprofit sphere and her devotion to elder care will add great depth to our mission and ministry.”
