Ken Dinitz has more than twenty years of experience as a collaborative leader and fundraiser at mission-driven organizations in the arts, higher education, and public broadcasting.
Ken believes that successful development comes from forging partnerships with prospective funders to pursue shared visions and goals.
Most recently, Ken was Development Director at the Cultural Data Project. Before that, he was Director of Corporate, Foundation and Government Relations at Swarthmore College for nine years. Previously, he led the endowment campaign for the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts in Burlington, VT. He also worked at the WNYC Foundation during its transition from a city-owned station to an independent nonprofit.
Ken expanded his horizons by spending three years in Alaska hiking, kayaking, and working for cultural non-profits: KNBA radio, “Alaska’s Native Voice”; Out North Contemporary Art House; and ARCS, the Alaska Rural Communications Service.
Ken holds a BA in Political Science from Swarthmore College and an MA in Media Studies and Communications from the New School.
Ken grew up in New York City, and lives with his wife and kids in Media, PA. He has raised his two boys as Yankees, Pirates, and Phillies fans.
