KEEN is a national, nonprofit volunteer-led organization that provides one-to-one recreational opportunities for children and young adults with developmental and physical disabilities at no cost to their families and caregivers. KEEN's mission is to foster the self-esteem, confidence, skills and talents of its athletes through non-competitive activities, allowing young people facing even the most significant challenges to meet their individual goals.
Dillon Barnes Cox Joins KEEN as National Development Director
KEEN USA is thrilled to announce that Dillon Barnes Cox has joined our team as National Development Director. Dillon is no stranger to KEEN: she was one of our first volunteers over 20 years ago at Tilden Middle School in Bethesda, MD! The sibling of someone with disabilities, Dillon has always been passionate about KEEN's mission to foster the self-esteem, confidence, skills and talents of our athletes.
She brings nearly 15 years of development and non-profit experience to KEEN having worked in higher education at Georgetown University and the University of Miami as well as international non-profits Special Olympics, International and the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, and independent school, St. John's Episcopal School. Most recently, Dillon served as Director of the Fund for Holy Child, Major Gifts, and Alumnae Relations at her Alma mater, Connelly School of the Holy Child, in Potomac, MD as well as an independent fundraising consultant working with a number of local, national, and international non-profit organizations.
We look forward to Dillon's help in expanding our national visibility and funding base, and continuing our success in affiliates across the country. Contact Dillon at email@example.com.
