Donna Marie Stumpf - Member at Large
A Wisconsin native, Donna moved to New Mexico with her family in the summer of 1987 and began her undergraduate work at New Mexico State University in the fall. While finishing her B.A. in Finance she worked in the Conservation Department at Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, New Mexico. Two summers of building trails led to a Master of Science in Environmental Economics and a passion for the outdoors and data collection ... and a love for an Eagle Scout whose post-doctoral work took them to South Bend, Indiana. There she entered the nonprofit world at NPR member station WVPE in Elkhart, Indiana and was instantly hooked on the 501(c)(3) environment and witnessing the direct results from her labors of love.
Following her return to New Mexico, Donna was introduced to the generous Albuquerque community through three years of work at All Faiths Receiving Home. She joined Animal Humane New Mexico's talented team in January 2007 and built a Development Team with a focus on high stewardship standards and excellent reporting to inform and inspire the shelter's treasured constituents.
During her years of fundraising work, Donna developed a rich background in grant writing, direct mail, capital campaigns, planned giving, database management and unique and meaningful donor acknowledgement tactics. This earned her the 2014 Outstanding Fundraising Professional honor from our Chapter in 2014.
Donna was promoted to Executive Director of Animal Humane New Mexico in February 2016 and is the proud parent of two special felines — Orbit and Sassafras.
