L’Arche USA is pleased to welcome Chris Craven, our new Director of Development. Chris grew up in the Southeastern United States where he graduated from Clemson University. He then attended Hamline University in St. Paul, MN and earned a Master’s degree in Nonprofit Management. Chris comes to L’Arche with over 10 years of nonprofit experience, most recently as a National Director of Business Development.
Chris is excited to bring these skills and experiences to L’Arche USA and is impacted by L’Arche’s commitment to community, spirituality, and a connection to his own story. Chris will be leading the L’Arche USA development team and fundraising efforts alongside Ellen Eischen, Mary Ruppert, Rod Greenough, and Nathan Ball.
Chris lives in Loveland, CO and will work remotely and travel to meet with his team and donors. Outside of work, Chris enjoys spending time with his family, golfing, hiking, watching college football, walking his four dogs, wine tasting, visiting breweries, and enjoying the outdoors.
