Familiar face, new place: Kimmel joins Historical Society and Museum

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – The Jackson Hole Historical Society and Museum (JHHSM) announced during its 14th annual Old Tyme Christmas program at The Wort the addition of new staff member, Becky Kimmel, as the Director of Development.

“We are thrilled to have found someone with Becky’s skill set to help advance the mission of the JHHSM,” stated the museum’s executive director Morgan Albertson Jaouen.

Kimmel has worn a fundraising hat for several local nonprofits during her career and is passionate about the Jackson Hole community. Most recently, she has been self-employed together with her husband Ted to operate their Edwal Storage business in Alpine. During that time she has also kept busy volunteering for the Senior Center of Jackson Hole.

“I directed my fundraising energies to the board of the Senior Center of Jackson Hole these past two years and now look forward to helping the JHHSM preserve local history in this professional capacity,” Kimmel said.

Kimmel is a member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) and is a Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) through the CFRE International Organization.

In the calendar year ending 2017, the JHHSM engaged 3,000 local students and over 20,000 museum-goers.

“As we begin to celebrate our 60th anniversary in 2018, the JHHSM, including staff, board, volunteers, and donors are focused on building momentum and capacity with an emphasis on community events, youth programming, multi-media exhibits, and collections management,” Jaouen said. “The decision to hire a part-time development professional is an investment for the JHHSM that will enable us to continue inspiring and informing our changing community through the preservation of Jackson Hole history.”
