F. Joshua Claudio is new Director of Development

“We are excited that Joshua has joined our team,” said Anthony DiPietro, executive director of HAWC. “He brings a passion for our mission along with valuable fundraising experience that will help us continue to grow and to expand our services and support for communities across the North Shore.”

Joshua has over seven years of experience managing institutional advancement, annual giving and alumni relations programs. Most recently, he was the annual fund manager for the New England Center for Homeless Veterans where he was responsible for implementing a $730,000 annual giving campaign.

Joshua will report directly to the Executive Director and work closely with the leadership team and board to plan and execute a comprehensive, integrated fund development program. The agency receives less than half of its budget from state and federal contracts, and must raise about $900,000 this year from private sources. Joshua’s primary responsibilities include engaging prospects and donors; pursuing funding opportunities from foundations, government, corporations, and individuals; planning events; and designing communications that represent HAWC’s mission and values.
