Josh Van Kirk

Welcome to the WINGS world, Josh! Wrapping up his first month as Atlanta Development Associate, Josh will continue to work under Atlanta Executive Director, Denise Blake's, guidance. A native of Missouri and Alabama, Joshua Van Kirk graduated with a B.A. in History from University of Delaware and an M.A. in Secondary Education from New York University.  Over the past decade, he has worked in the constituency and legislative offices of senior government officials in the U.S. and U.K. and served as an educator, fundraiser, and social historian for several NYC-based nonprofits and museums.  After seven years in NYC, Josh recently relocated to Atlanta and is excited to return to his southern roots and be nearer to family. "I couldn't be more thrilled to join WINGS.  From our exceptional staff and board to the outstanding students we serve, this is a first-rate organization that fills every day with inspiration and I'm proud to be a part of it."

Thank You!

May 6th was Give Local America's online day of giving. WINGS participated in Lift The Lowcountry and raised more than $90,000 (that number hasn't been incentivized yet!) and blew past our goal of getting 80 gifts by nabbing 147 in 24 hours. THANK YOU, Friends!
