Education Luncheon: “After the Campaign: What Now?”





A conversation about lessons learned and plans to continue to ride the momentum of the largest campaign in history for conservation. Jan will share her perspectives and strategies and engage in a dialogue on how to ensure campaigns can be transformational and why many organizations find themselves in constant campaign mode.



Our Speaker:

Jan Mittan, Director of Philanthropy, The Nature Conservancy, New York

Jan Mittan joined The Nature Conservancy in August 2015 as New York’s Chief Development Officer, where she leads the New York Division and Global Market’s $350 million campaign in support of the Conservancy’s Our World campaign to raise an unprecedented $7 billion globally for conservation. Jan’s career is built on developing the architecture for and executing campaigns. As the Conservancy’s campaign ends in 2020, she co-authored an initiative to create a new paradigm to enable the Conservancy to double down its global fundraising efforts over the next decade.

Jan’s passion is campaigns and believes the process transforms and strengthens organizations. Prior to the Conservancy, from 2001 – 2015, Jan led campaigns to build two children’s hospitals in the New York Metro, serving as the Sr. VP for Development & External Relations at St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children and as the Executive Director at the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center. Jan served on the faculty of Columbia University’s master’s program in Nonprofit Management from 2002 – 2015.  Jan’s career began as the Development Officer at the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies.
