Building on its strengths, United Way of the Midlands welcomes a new member to its community impact team.
President and CEO Karen Bricklemyer announced this week that Hillary Nather-Detisch has joined the organization as Senior Vice President for Community Impact. Most recently, she served as director of donor accounts for the Omaha Community Foundation.
Nather-Detisch is a graduate of Omaha North High School, earned a BA in Political Science from San Francisco State University and a Masters in Public Administration with a Nonprofit Management concentration from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Nather-Detisch is a graduate of Leadership Omaha Class 28 and was recognized in 2002 as one of the Ten Outstanding Young Omahans.
“Hillary has a strong sense of community,” said Bricklemyer, “and a deep commitment to data-driven solutions for the tough challenges some of our neighbors face. When people give their financial and volunteer support, she’ll make sure their contributions make a measurable difference in our neighbors’ lives.”
Nather-Detisch will lead United Way’s community impact efforts, historically known for investment of donor dollars in local human service programs. The organization is working on implementation of its new strategic plan which includes support of the local safety net of human service programs and a sharper focus on ending poverty.
United Way’s history of collaboration drew the Omaha native to this new challenge. “I’m excited and ready to get right to work with staff, volunteers and community organizations to focus on long-term positive change,” said Nather-Detisch. “The time to act is now, so the next generation of metro families will have the opportunity to be as successful as possible. “
