The National Kidney Foundation of Maryland (NKF-MD) today named Diana Mitchell its new development manager.

“I look forward to bringing my professional experience, creative energy and knowledge of Baltimore to help cultivate new partners for NKF-MD, while spreading kidney awareness throughout the metropolitan area,” Mitchell said.
According to NKF-MD, Mitchell has more than years in the non-profit sector and most recently was coordinator of community safety programs for the Charles Village Community Benefits District. In that capacity, she organized successful events, such as National Night Out for multiple neighborhoods, as well as various projects through the Mayor’s Youth Employment Program.
She previously managed volunteers for the Domestic Violence Center and Greater Homewood Community Corporation, and organized events for Dick Gelfman’s Ride Across Maryland and the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN™) in Fairfax, Va.
