Who is Development Services?

Development Services is a small, but mighty, team! It is comprised of Charles “Chuck” Nelson, Chief Development Officer, and Devin Goodhart, Development Coordinator. As a 501(c)(3) organization, a key component for Menno Haven is fundraising, which is the primary focus of Development Services. In reality, this team does far more than just raise money. The Source for Advancement states, “Development is the strategic process to identify, cultivate, solicit, recognize and steward prospects and donors.” If you ask Chuck, he doesn’t raise money. He says that he builds relationships with the residents and the community.

One of Development Service’s main focuses is Menno Haven’s Benevolent Fund. This fund serves residents who have depleted their financial resources, through no fault of their own, and are unable to pay the full cost of their care. This fund represents Menno Haven’s legacy of care and commitment to its residents.
