FCPS Hires New Leader for Foundation

fcps logoFairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) has hired Michelangelo (Mike) Infurnari to serve as executive director of the Foundation for Fairfax County Public Schools, a nonprofit founded in 2010 as a partnership between the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce and FCPS.

Infurnari has more than 30 years of experience in fundraising and nonprofit organization management, most recently as director of development at the WateReuse Research Foundation, where he raised $4.8 million during a 15-month period while working closely with board members and key volunteer peer leaders, FCPS says. He served as senior vice president for development and operations at InHealth, the research foundation of the Advanced Medical Technology Association, where he developed the framework to establish the foundation and raised $24 million in philanthropic funding in two campaigns.

“We are excited to welcome Mike Infurnari to Fairfax County Public Schools,” said Superintendent Karen K. Garza.  “He brings many years of experience in professional fundraising to our Foundation, and we look forward to having him employ his skills to benefit FCPS students. We will be working with the Foundation board to develop a plan for engaging the business community in new and strategic ways.  I believe that there is tremendous untapped opportunity with our business, corporate, and philanthropic communities for support of our school system.”

Previously, Infurnari directed the Washington, D.C., office of CCS Fundraising, a consulting firm that works with non-profit organizations on capital campaign readiness and fundraising program implementation—including several K-12 and university clients—to raise funds for renovations and new facilities, scholarships and financial aid, and faculty support.  He is the former director of development for Catholic schools at the Catholic Diocese of Buffalo.

“Mike is just the right person with just the right background to lead the Foundation,” said Gerald L. Gordon, Ph.D., president and CEO of the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority and chairman of the Foundation. “The board is focused on increasing the visibility of the school system’s various needs and generating support in the community to help address them, and Mike’s leadership will be critical in doing that.”
