Houghton College’s Guest Professional Dinner Series welcomes Heather Hill, a 2008 graduate who is currently the assistant manager of donor acquisition and digital fundraising for the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. The dinner and lecture will take place on Monday, Feb. 29 at 5 p.m. in the South End Dining Hall at Houghton College. The event is open to the public.
In her current position, Hill is responsible for designing emails and donor acquisition strategies as well as giving tours of the National Opera studios, organizing staff galas and much more.
In addition to her job with the Kennedy Center, Hill serves as co-chair for the Human Rights Committee of the United Nations Association of the National Capitol Area (UNANCA). In that capacity, she moderates panels, attends UN Human Rights Council briefings at the State Department, and organizes events promoting Human Rights. With the UNANCA, she also works as the brand manager and acting co-chair for communications, directing marketing materials and the organization’s digital engagement.
She also volunteers with The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women.
Hill is a writer, artist and activist and recently was featured on Yahoo Finance as a key organizer in the project “29 Days of February,” an online project that brings attention and respect to the homeless by the telling of personal stories of Washington D.C. homeless individuals through writing and imagery.
