SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. — Maureen Mahoney, who has worked in a variety of capacities at the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame since joining the institution in 2015, has been named the Museum’s Development Director.
A native of Glens Falls, N.Y., and a graduate of Skidmore College, Mahoney will lead the Museum’s development and sponsorship initiatives and assume a prominent role in special events, marketing, and outreach.
“Maureen will do an excellent job as the Development Director,” said Cate Masterson, the Museum’s Director. “In her time here she has updated the donor management system and brought the Museum’s databases into modern times. She is extremely detailed oriented and enthusiastic about fundraising. Maureen’s responsibilities will include grant writing as well. This transition is a natural fit and very well deserved.”
Prior to being named to her new role, Mahoney served the Museum as Development and Membership Officer and played key roles in social media and special events, including the Museum Ball.
After graduating from Skidmore in 2013 with a B.A. in Art History and a minor in Studio Art, Mahoney worked as an educator at the World Awareness Children’s Museum in Glens Falls prior to joining the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame.
