MDC names John Mitterling Senior Director of Development
DURHAM -- John Mitterling, previously recognized as the Outstanding Fundraising Executive by the Triangle Association of Fundraising Professionals, joined MDC this month as its senior director of development.
Mitterling joins MDC with nearly 30 years of development experience and will spearhead new initiatives that supplement MDC’s current fundraising efforts as the organization aims to help communities in the South “build an Infrastructure of Opportunity,” according to a statement.
“MDC is an organization that facilitates important systemic change and clears the barriers that people at the bottom rungs of the economic ladder need removed in order to succeed,” Mitterling said. “I am excited to champion MDC’s efforts to advance equity and opportunity in the South as the senior director of development.”
Mitterling brings a background in leading development efforts for youth-serving organizations, healthcare, and education, all of which are core focus areas for MDC’s programmatic work.
Mitterling joins MDC from Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Triangle, and previously worked at the John Avery Boys & Girls Club, YMCA of the Triangle and the North Carolina Symphony. He began his career working for his alma mater, UNC-Chapel Hill.
