OSSINING, N.Y. -- Dominican Sisters Family Health Service Inc. (DSFHS) has promoted Marianne Bogannam to director of development.
Based in Ossining, the visiting-nurse service provides professional, compassionate and holistic in-home care to people of all faiths, income levels and ages throughout the region.
As director of development, Bogannam will be responsible for helping the agency to achieve its mission through philanthropic support, including special events, marketing, fundraising and community outreach.
“Marianne has been an integral part of the Dominican Sisters Family Health Service since 2006," said Mary Zagajeski, president and chief executive officer of DSFHS.
"We are pleased to have her now in this significant role of leading the agency’s development strategies. Marianne’s diverse background and overall experience will be great for this role.”
Bogannam started working at DSFHS nine years ago as development coordinator at the agency's Suffolk County location. In that position, she was chairperson of the Suffolk board-driven Charity in Action Fundraising Committee.
She also pursued major donors on the East End of Long Island. She was later promoted to development manager, a position in which she oversaw the Helping Hands program for seniors, coordinated and wrote grants, managed thrift-store operations and organized all of the fundraising events in the county. She was also responsible for overseeing more than 60 volunteers at the thrift store.
Prior to joining DSFHS, she was a co-owner of three retail businesses in Connecticut for roughly 20 years. She also worked as a Realtor, flight attendant and assistant to the director of the American Institute for Foreign Study.
Bogannam received a bachelor’s degree from Adelphi University and has been involved in volunteer work in her community.
