Kathy Limmer will join United Way of Metropolitan Dallas as the nonprofit’s new chief growth officer.
Limmer will be responsible for building, growing, and sustaining strong relationships with donors to strengthen United Way’s ability to pursue its mission of creating the opportunity for all North Texans to thrive, the organization said.
Her appointment comes at a pivotal moment as the organization prepares to celebrate its centennial milestone for its first 100 years of service. The UWMD Centennial Series, beginning in Fall 2023, includes two “marquee event streams”: a community impact volunteer engagement series and a culminating celebration at Fair Park in Dallas. Each will have several activations.
“The is the ideal time to add world-class talent to our leadership team at United Way of Metropolitan Dallas as we continue to build and execute programs to achieve our Aspire United 2030 goals while also moving toward the celebration of our first century of service,” Jennifer Sampson, McDermott-Templeton president and CEO of United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, said in a statement. “I’m confident that Kathy’s strong track record in annual and endowment campaigns will make immediate and strong contributions to our impact efforts across the organization and throughout the region.”
Limmer comes to United Way after serving nine years as the assistant head of school for advancement at the Taipei American School.
Before that she was the director of development and external affairs at The Hockaday School in Dallas. At Hockaday, Limmer successfully managed Hockaday’s $100 million campaign and centennial.
She also held positions as the associate dean for advancement for humanities and social sciences at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth and as director of development for The School of Social Work at Tulane University.
