SEDRC 2020 Session:

Stories at the Center of Stewardship

Melissa Landry
Manager, Donor Relations


About the Session

Positive experience, devastating tragedy, tax write-off. These are just a few of the reasons that donors give. This session will discuss what to look for in a good story, how to seek out information and the ways you can share a donor's "why" in a way that will inspire others. We'll share the triumphs, the roadblocks and the joys that come in working in a field where people's generosity quite literally changes and saves lives.

About the Speaker

Melissa Landry joined ADRP a little over four years ago upon entering the field of Donor Relations as a total novice in the industry. A native of New Orleans, she received a BA in journalism and digital design and an MBA in management and leadership from Tulane University. She currently works as Manager of Donor Relations at Ochsner Health System and enjoys spending her days talking to donors about why they give and to the patients who have been impacted by their generosity. In her free time, she loves all things true crime, spending time with her family and friends and traveling with her husband.
