Moishe Hellman and Mel Zachter, Co-Presidents of OHEL Children’s Home and Family Services, announce the appointment of Alan Secter as the new chief development officer of OHEL.

Alan brings extensive, well-rounded fundraising and leadership experience to this role. Prior to joining OHEL, Alan served as executive director of annual giving & major gifts with Yeshiva University. He previously held the position of senior director in the Planned Giving and Endowments Department with the Jewish Federations of North America.

In his new position Alan will be responsible for achieving the fundraising goals for OHEL and Camp Kaylie, and will play a key role in completing the capital campaign for the new OHEL Jaffa Family Campus. He will lead the development of strategies that introduce new donors to OHEL and increase engagement among current supporters.

Reflecting on joining the OHEL team, Alan commented that “OHEL’s mandate to help everyday people with everyday problems resonates deeply with me. Virtually each and every family in our community has at least one member who does—or could—benefit from OHEL’s programs. The breadth of OHEL’s reach and depth of its service are truly amazing. It is a real privilege to devote my professional energies to this wonderful organization and its noble mission.”

As chief development officer, Alan will work closely with OHEL senior staff, the board of directors of OHEL, Bais Ezra, Lifetime Care Foundation and Camp Kaylie, and community leaders.
