Kathleen Kane Named Vice President of Philanthropy for Los Angeles Philharmonic Association
Los Angeles Philharmonic Association President and Chief Executive Officer Deborah Borda has announced the appointment of Kathleen Kane to the position of Vice President of Philanthropy. Kane joins the Philharmonic from City of Hope in Los Angeles, where she was most recently the Chief Philanthropy and External Relations Officer.
"Kathleen is one of the leading development professionals in the United States, with over 25 years of experience in fundraising and building high-performing development teams, and we are delighted to welcome her to the LA Phil family," says Borda. "The skill, knowledge, and enthusiasm she brings to the Association are a great complement to this institution's leadership team and will play an important role in our future."
Kathleen Kane assumes her new position in mid-June. Her responsibilities include the leadership and management of all Los Angeles Philharmonic Association fundraising efforts, including the formulation, planning and execution of a fundraising strategy that incorporates the many facets of the development department. The department encompasses annual fund, major gifts, grants, corporate sponsorships, planned giving, volunteer services, Board development, endowment and capital campaigns, and special gala and recognition events at both Walt Disney Concert Hall and the Hollywood Bowl.
"It is an honor to join such an iconic organization as the LA Phil at this particular moment in its history," says Kathleen Kane. "To be able to work with Deborah Borda, her executive team and such an amazing board is an unparalleled opportunity. Together we will grow philanthropy to ensure a vibrant musical future for the citizens of Los Angeles."
