Interim Chief Development Officer
Based in Washington, DC
Tisha Hyter brings over 10 years of professional fundraising experience and has a long history supporting women’s organisations including TIME’S UP and the UN Foundation.
In her role as Vice President at Orr Group, Tisha provides strategic direction and development management. After 15 years in Corporate America as a Sales Leader, Tisha pivoted her skillset and career path towards international nonprofits and local organisations that focus on the rights for women, people of colour and disenfranchised communities.
As Vice President for TIME’S UP, Tisha was responsible for building and overseeing their individual giving programs, hiring and training development staff, collaborating with peers in Marketing and Strategy to build partnerships in the sports and entertainment industries, representing TIME’S UP to external audiences and building a culture of philanthropy.
Prior to this, Tisha held several leadership roles with successful nonprofits serving as Director of Philanthropic Engagement at National Women’s Law Center, Deputy Director at the United Nations Foundation, and Director of Major Gifts at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington. Her experience with these organisations has spanned from Southeast Washington, DC to Southeast Africa and includes event management, development of annual and capital campaigns, creating global strategies, and donor optimisation.
Working in sales management for companies such as FedEx and Verizon, Tisha has trained hundreds of professionals on the fundamentals of product knowledge, time and territory management, and goal setting and achievement. She has also used those same skills as a volunteer to personally help fundraise several million dollars in the faith, culture, and education realms; perhaps the highlight of her community service came when she co-chaired a record-breaking fundraiser for a domestic violence organisation with former First Lady Michelle Obama as its featured guest.
