Michael E. Vanderburgh, currently Chief Development Officer for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, has been named Executive Director of the Dayton District Council of St. Vincent de Paul and will assume his duties this December.
“Michael is a talented executive with impressive accomplishments among constituencies whose support is vital to the future of St. Vincent de Paul,” said Dayton District Council President John Glaser. “We look forward to his leadership.”
Vanderburgh recently led The One Faith, One Hope, One Love campaign for the regional ministries of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. The campaign has raised over $166 million in pledges with more than $82 million already collected.
At St. Vincent, Vanderburgh will work with a staff of 140 and 2,000 volunteers to coordinate shelter, housing and other ministries that in 2017 will touch the lives 100,000+ poor and homeless residents of the Dayton-area community; and oversee St. Vincent’s $10 million annual operating budget.
Among St. Vincent’s most visible ministries are the operation and management of (a) the community’s two Gateway Shelter for homeless men, women and children; (b) an extensive network of housing for 140+ families and individuals with special needs; and (c) the Dayton community’s largest network of food pantries, serving 50,000 individuals and families each year.
St. Vincent also owns and manages the 400,000+ square foot Montgomery County Job Center complex on Edwin C. Moses Boulevard.
In his capacity as St. Vincent Executive Director, Vanderburgh will work with a senior management team to manage the network of partnerships St. Vincent has established with state, local and federal government agencies; with corporate and philanthropic financial supporters; with 33 Conferences (chapters) whose 750 members will provide $2 million of cash and in-kind assistance to at-risk households in 2017; and with the large number of private donors who support St. Vincent with their time and treasure.
Vanderburgh brings diverse professional experience to his new position. In addition to several executive posts at the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, he has served as Director of Estate and Asset Services at the local office of the American Cancer Society; as Senior Development Officer at the Children’s Medical Center of Dayton; and as the Director of Planned Giving at Clarke College. He has also served on the legislative staffs of former U. S. Representative David Hobson (R-OH) of Springfield, and U.S. Senator Dennis DeConcini (D-AZ).
Vanderburgh succeeds David Bohardt, who will retire on December 1.
