We’re pleased to announce Willie Recht as the new Development Director of One Colorado! Willie comes to our organization with an incredible breadth of experience.
Most recently, Willie served as Manager of Donor Relations & Women’s Philanthropy for JEWISHColorado (formerly the Allied Jewish Federation). While there, he worked with top professional and lay leadership to grow their annual campaign to $10 million.
Willie attributes his fundraising success to his belief that building and maintaining genuine relationships with donors and prospects are crucial. He has already begun strategizing new ways to diversify One Colorado’s revenue streams and personalize our development efforts.
Prior to JEWISHColorado, Willie was at Keshet, where he worked with community leaders to increase visibility and advance equality for the LGBT Jewish community in Colorado through religious and educational programming, events, and outreach.
Willie’s professional background also includes political and business experience. Ask him about Senator Herb Kohl or Neiman Marcus! But above all, he is committed to equality on all levels and brings his infectious enthusiasm to everything he does.
One Colorado is delighted to have Willie join our team.
