In May 2011, Devin Noonan joined the A. S. Charity Fundraising team as an intern, and he’s been quick to move up the ranks within our organization. Shortly after his internship, Devin took charge of our online networking presence and became our Social Media Coordinator before his promotion to Charity Fundraising Assistant in August 2012. This past December, Devin was named our newest Charity Fundraising Specialist, and has already made a huge impact for our charity partners.
“Working at A. S. Charity Fundraising has been an extremely rewarding experience,” Noonan said. “Our charity partners are blazing the philanthropic trail with their fundraising efforts, and I’m just happy that I can contribute to their success. I’ve had the amazing opportunity to take on numerous roles since I first came on board, and it’s been an incredible learning experience for me.”
Devin’s interest in fundraising started through his work with Kiwanis and the National Honors Society in high school, setting up local fundraising events for his peers. His involvement continued during his time at Rutgers University, where he became a leading member of Alpha Chi Rho Fraternity. As president, he served on the Interfraternity Council and eventually joined their governing board in an effort to promote unity, scholarship and service to thousands of students. Just because his education is finished for now does not mean that he’s lost his strong desire to give back.
“My grandfather is a past New York State President of the ELKS, so I’ll be joining their ranks and helping their fundraising efforts very soon,” Noonan said. “At the moment, I’ve focused my efforts on supporting the Multiple Sclerosis Society on behalf of my stepfather, who was recently diagnosed with MS.”
The widespread reach of A. S. Charity Fundraising‘s program is what really truly helps fuel Devin’s passion for philanthropy.
“Now more than ever, I see so many causes around the world in dire need of support and awareness,” Noonan said. “I couldn’t have asked for a better opportunity to do my part by helping our charity partners do theirs.”
In his free time Devin enjoys golfing, cooking, spending an evening out to dinner or a show, and writing as a featured NFL columnist for Bleacher Report.
