FSW Welcomes Mary K. Vinton, Vice President for Development and External Affairs

FSW is pleased to announce the appointment of Mary K. Vinton as Vice President for Development and External Affairs.  Ms. Vinton has many years of fundraising and communications experience in the non-profit sector, most recently as the Director of External Affairs for Literacy Partners in New York City.  Previously she was the Director of Development for several organizations in Connecticut including Kids in Crisis, the King School, and the Greenwich Library.  Her skills in cultivating donors, soliciting major gifts and working with Boards of Directors as well as her expertise in event planning and managing social media will be critical as FSW moves forward with a new strategic plan and prepares to celebrate our 60th anniversary of making a difference in Westchester County.  Ms. Vinton will replace Lynn Green, who is retiring after 12 years at FSW.  Most recently, Ms. Green played a key role in FSW’s capital campaign, successfully raising over $1 million in matching funds for the Lanza Family Center for All Ages, a new intergenerational facility to be built in White Plains.  She will continue to work with FSW on the Center for all Ages project in a volunteer capacity.  “We are thrilled to have Mary join our team,” said FSW’s President/CEO Susan Wayne.  “From day one, she understood the challenges we face and the Board and I feel confident she has the knowledge, energy and passion to meet those challenges.  We are also delighted that Lynn Green will continue to work with us to bring our dream of the Center for All Age to reality.”
