Newcomb to Be First Full-Time Fundraiser for the Task Force
Ryan Newcomb stepped into his role as the first full-time Development Director for the Gallatin River Task Force on November 15th. The new position was supported through a capital campaign contribution made possible by a public-private partnership between the Yellowstone Club and Madison County.
Newcomb joins the Task Force from Washington, DC and brings ten years of experience fundraising for diverse organizations including the Boys Scouts of America and American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. As a member of the Task Force leadership team, he will create and implement fundraising strategies to support the Task Force mission and strategic plan.
“We are absolutely thrilled to have Ryan join our team in a role that the Task Force has needed for quite some time,” stated Kristin Gardner, Task Force Executive Director. “And we are incredibly grateful for the visionary gift from the Yellowstone Club and Madison County that will undoubtedly have a long-lasting impact on our organization and ultimately the future of the Gallatin River.”
The Yellowstone Club partnered with Madison County to fully fund the position through the Gallatin River Forever Campaign. Gallatin River Forever is a campaign to monitor, repair, and improve the Gallatin River and its tributaries to ensure the long-term health of the watershed.
