Tim-McDonaldAfter an extensive search utilizing an outside firm, David C Cook announces that Tim MacDonald has agreed to become the chief advancement officer, a newly created position, beginning March 2. MacDonald will report directly to Chief Executive Officer Chris Dornboos and will serve as a member of the David C Cook leadership team.

MacDonald is an accomplished senior leader with over 20 years of experience with nonprofit and for-profit organizations, including Focus on the Family, The Jenkins Companies, Woodmen Valley Chapel and, most recently, the Dexter Group. Notably, he served as chief of advancement for Gary Bauer in his run for president in 1999.

“I am thrilled to have someone with Tim’s experience and giftedness joining the leadership team at David C Cook,” Doornbos says. “His passion for our global mission, combined with his heart for relationships and his business acumen make him a perfect fit for this role.”

MacDonald’s primary responsibilities will be the creation, documentation and execution of a five-year Donor Development Plan, which will be designed to “message the mission” and increase the size of the donor base and their contributions to the ministry.

MacDonald will also be responsible for building a cross-departmental team of marketing experts from each department to lead Corporate Communication Strategies and campaigns to the ministry’s key stakeholders. Accordingly, he will also act as chief public relations officer for the entire organization.

“It is exciting to see the team that the Lord has put together under Cris’ leadership, and it is even more exciting to be a part of that team,” MacDonald said. “I’m honored at the opportunity to expand the relationships with investors/donors for this ministry, across the country and around the world. With God, nothing is impossible when He directs our path.”
