We are thrilled to announce the recognition of Theresa Pesch, RN, Children’s vice president of development and executive director of the Foundation, as a Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal Women in Business honoree. The annual program honors the region’s top female executives for their contributions to their organizations, industries and community.
Since joining Children’s five years ago, Theresa has built an accomplished development team at Children’s who, in turn, have truly captured the passion of what the organization stands for. In fact, in just a few short years, Theresa and her team have helped elevate our fundraising efforts from $4-5 million a year to more than $25 million a year.
Grounded in an ongoing commitment to help Children’s provide innovative programs and world class pediatric health care, Theresa has also spearheaded many of the largest philanthropic sponsorships, community partnerships and fundraising efforts in Children’s 80-plus year history. Her outstanding record of success is very worthy of accolades and recognition.
Congratulations to Theresa! We are so proud to have you as part of the Children’s family. Thank you for your passion, leadership and dedication to helping ensure we can continue to deliver the high-quality care that the families and kids in our community depend on.
