Development Director Raises $1 Million for Local YMCA

Santa Anita Family YMCA Development Director Cheryl Reynolds has brought in $1 million in donations to the organization over the last four years, according to a nonprofit publication.

Monrovia resident and Santa Anita Family YMCA Development Director Cheryl Reynolds has raised $1 million for the organization over the last four years, the Chronicle of Philanthropy reports.

Reynolds took over chief fundraising duties for the YMCA four years ago and has grown the organization's donor base by focusing on soliciting large donations from affluent donors, according to the Chronicle.

"Ms. Reynolds says that she doesn’t have a secret behind her fundraising success except to focus on 'creating relationships.' She does that by showing
up—at every community function she can," the publication reports.

State legislators from local districts recognized Reynolds as the Outstanding Non-Profit Employee for the 13th Annual Women in Business Awards earlier this year.

Last year, Reynolds' raised $402,000, an increase of nearly 60 percent compared to the previous year, according to the Chronicle.
