Kerry Lassaux, Director of Development
Director of Development


I come to The UWBH with 22 years of experience in development and fundraising.  Having attained my MS in Not-for-Profit Administration, I started my fundraising career in 1999 as an event director for the American Heart Association.  I have demonstrated experience in the fundamental strategies of development, from grass roots to high end events, in-kind and monetary sponsorship, major gifts to planned giving, large corporate campaigns to wrap around events.  You name it, I’ve done it.

I love this field of work because I have the necessary skill set, learned and inherent, to make this position both fun and rewarding.  My personality naturally lends itself to building authentic relationships. 

I make it a priority to exhibit professionalism and leadership on behalf of the United Way of the Black Hills, working with the Board of Directors, staff and volunteers in the pursuit of UWBH’s mission and strategic goals. Essential duties include leadership, management of initiatives, and resource development.
