Casey Marsh has been named Chief Development Officer at Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. She started May 11 and will be based in the organization’s Chicago office.
Marsh will serve as Feeding America’s lead fundraiser, strategist and ambassador to help advance the organization’s mission and strategic goals. She will help grow revenue streams for integrated fundraising efforts by building strategic partnerships, cultivating donors and expanding markets. She will also support fundraising capacity-building across Feeding America’s network of 200 food banks.
Marsh comes to Feeding America from UNICEF USA, where she worked since 2007 as Regional Managing Director for the Midwest and then as Vice President of Regions-West. In the latter, she oversaw five regional teams and boards in several states in raising awareness, funds and voices to help save and protect the world’s most vulnerable children. Her accomplishments have included leading a team to raise more than $50 million annually from major gifts, corporations, foundations and special events, developing and executing an organizational strategic plan, leading key national partnerships, and building and developing boards.
In her role as Managing Director for the Midwest Region, Marsh helped support UNICEF’s mission by engaging individuals in the Midwest. During this time, she led donor visits in Panama, Zambia, Mozambique, Montenegro and Jordan to advocate on behalf of the world’s children in Chicago and across the country.
Prior to joining UNICEF USA, Marsh served on the Development team at the AIDs Foundation of Chicago from 2000 to 2007. She currently serves on the foundation’s Honorary Board of Directors.
“Casey is an experienced fundraising professional committed to solving social problems and improving justice and equity for marginalized populations,” said Claire Babineaux-Fontenot, CEO of Feeding America. “She has the passion and track record for creating and executing development strategies in support of organizational mission. Under her leadership, I know Feeding America will be even more equipped to serve millions of our neighbors seeking food assistance from our network each year.”
Marsh earned her Master of Science in Public Service Management at DePaul University in Chicago, where she focused her research on the psychology of giving. She also received her Bachelor of Arts in Marketing from Loyola University Maryland.
