Hospital names executive director of Development
New Britain [June 26 2009] -
Wendy M. Lux recently joined The Hospital of Central Connecticut as executive director of Development. In this position she will oversee the fundraising activities for the hospital.
She is a familiar face to many at the hospital, having worked for the former New Britain General Hospital for over 15 years in various positions, including director of Development, from 1996 to 2002.
“I’m thrilled to rejoin the hospital family,” Lux said. “I look forward to connecting with friends and supporters of the hospital to further advance our mission.”
A certified fundraising executive, Lux has over 18 years of fundraising experience, with a focus on health care.
Before joining HCC in May, she worked at the University of Connecticut Foundation, where she most recently served as associate vice president for Development for the UConn Health Center. In that role, Lux managed the overall development operation and provided oversight and strategic direction for the Health Center’s fundraising and alumni relations efforts.
Prior to her UConn position, Lux was director of Development at the New Milford Hospital Foundation, where she led efforts to significantly increase philanthropic support through events, annual giving, major gifts, planned giving, and several special giving campaigns.
Lux is involved in numerous professional organizations, including the Association of Healthcare Philanthropy, and the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), Connecticut Chapter, which presented her with its Outstanding Fundraising of Year award in 2007. She served as AFP Connecticut Chapter president from 2005-06.
In all of her development roles, Lux has worked closely with organizational leadership, board members, faculty, staff, donors and volunteer leadership.
“I am deeply impressed and inspired by the generous support the hospital receives from the community, its employees, physicians and volunteers,” Lux said. “Philanthropy plays an important role in our future, and will help enable the hospital to provide the best possible care to our patients.”
