Annmarie Mauger Wilmeth, Vice President
Annemarie Wilmeth joined The Sheridan Group in 2007, and has provided a wide array of campaign development audit, comparative analysis, feasibility study and campaign management services to The Church of the Redeemer, The Woods Academy, The Butler School, the Water Research Foundation, the YMCA of Greater Richmond, and the International Student House. She brings more than 18 years experience as a fundraising professional in Virginia to the firm, having worked in independent school development in metropolitan Washington from 1990 until 2005. Apart from her work with the firm, Annmarie is the Director of the Knight Fund at Bishop O’Connell High School in Arlington, VA and Secretary of the Tyler Robinson Foundation.
Her development career began at Browne Academy in Alexandria where she organized and implemented a successful Development program consisting of annual fundraising, two capital campaigns, volunteer and young alumni programs, as well as the marketing and communications programs necessary to complement fundraising at the School.
At Capitol Hill Day School in Washington, D.C, her substantial experience provided the leadership to reorganize and revamp an existing development program resulting in increased Annual Giving. The inception of a major gift program encompassing cultivation and stewardship under her leadership allowed the School to embark on a successful feasibility study and subsequently to begin it’s first planned and organized capital gift effort.
Annmarie has made presentations for the National Association of Independent Schools/Council of Advancement and Support of Education, and the Association of Independent Schools of Greater Washington. She is a member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals and currently serves as the Alumni Parent Chair for Annual Giving at Browne Academy in Alexandria.
Annmarie’s in-depth experience in metropolitan Washington area non-profit organizations allows her to be well aware of the benefits and challenges facing non-profits today. Ever-growing expenditures necessitate the commitment of trustees and administrators to sharpen fundraising programs to be their best for our organizations and their donors.
Ms. Wilmeth attended Auburn University in Alabama where she majored in Special Education. Her son recently graduated from West Virginia University, where her daughter is a current student. She resides in Northern Virginia.
