Chris Iven, Director of Philanthropy

Elmcrest welcomes Chris Iven as its new director of philanthropy. He has served as executive director of the East Area Family YMCA and director of fund development for the Child Advocacy Center of Oswego County.

“Chris comes to Elmcrest with the experience and skills we need to grow our resources,” said Joseph Geglia, executive director. “With government funding continuing to erode, Chris’ experience will help tell our story and develop lasting relationships for our future.”

For more than a decade, Chris was a newspaper reporter and editor in Syracuse and New England. He also directed communications for Fayetteville-Manlius Schools and the YMCA of Greater Syracuse.
