Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care has announced that Rebecca Benard has joined the organization as the new director of development for the foundation.

For almost a decade, Benard has worked in development in all areas of fundraising, including individual giving, major gifts, foundation grants, corporate giving, capital campaigns and planned giving. In this capacity, she has worked with various nonprofit organizations, most recently with St. Barnabas Senior Services in Los Angeles.

Prior to working with nonprofits, Benard enjoyed 15 years as a small-business owner managing professional associations. During this time, she was responsible for transitioning these organizations from grassroots affiliations to nationally recognized membership chapters, flush with financial resources and highly influential reputations.

At the start of her professional career, she worked for more than a decade in the aerospace industry as a financial analyst and strategic planner.

Benard holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in business, both from Loyola Marymount University. She lives with her husband in the Ojai Valley, and they have a daughter who is a junior in college.

With an accomplished background in both the profit and nonprofit sectors, Benard brings a combination of exceptional business acumen and a heart committed to service to VNHC.

Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care is the area’s leading nonprofit provider of comprehensive in-home health care. Its mission is to provide high quality, comprehensive home health, hospice and related services necessary to promote the health and well-being of all community residents, including those unable to pay. It serves the greater Santa Barbara area, and Santa Ynez and Lompoc Valleys. Established in 1908, Visiting Nurse is one of Santa Barbara’s oldest nonprofit organizations.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
