Lynn Rozental began her work as director of philanthropy in September. In this capacity she works closely with the dean, executive director, and volunteer leadership to identify and build strong relationships between the Cathedral and the donors who make possible its work, focusing on the most promising opportunities to lift up the Cathedral’s national mission while also providing support for special initiatives.

Rozental comes from the George Washington University, where she had served since 2009 as a director of major gifts for the medical school and developed creative new ways to engage medical school alumni in the lives of current students. Previously she had been director of individual and foundation relations at Safe Kids Worldwide and assistant director of development and communications at the Textile Museum. She has also held senior positions at a number of organizations devoted to historic sites, holding an A.B. in history from Bryn Mawr College and an M.S. in historic preservation from the University of Vermont.
