Corinne Wolffe is new KiDiMu Development Director

Corinne Wolffe has joined the ranks of the Kids Discovery Museum staff as the nonprofit’s new development director.

“Corinne is a seasoned and creative fundraising professional with a passion for education and proven track record in nonprofit leadership,” said KiDiMu executive director Susie Burdick. “We are pleased to add her diverse skillset to our team to further strengthen the museum’s sustainability and commitment to opening young minds.”

Wolffe is currently the PTO president at Ordway Elementary School, where she spearheaded fundraising efforts for the past two years. Her previous experience includes working with Peoria PlayHouse Childrens Museum to develop fundraising events and strengthen donor engagement, including the creation of an advisory board to continue development initiatives.

She also led rebranding and marketing initiatives for the Community Foundation of Central Illinois’s Emerging Philanthropist Fund, which resulted in a 50 percent increase in donor participation year over year.

In addition, Wolffe formalized the volunteer management process at Heart of Illinois Special Recreation Association, which resulted in an increase in coach and athlete participation, satisfaction, and engagement across the agency’s Special Olympics programs.

“I have a strong belief that play and exploration are an essential part of development, and that children need dedicated spaces to create those experiences through partnerships in their community,” Wolffe said.

“My own children and their friends have benefited from playful learning at KiDiMu, and I feel honored to have the opportunity to give back and apply my professional, and volunteer experience to our region’s families through the work of the museum,” she added.
