Chrysler Museum of Art announces Kate Hofheimer Wilson as Director of Development

NORFOLK, VA.- The Chrysler Museum of Art announced the appointment of Kate Hofheimer Wilson as Director of Development. She brings more than 13 years of nonprofit development experience in Hampton Roads to the Museum, where she will set fundraising goals and develop strategies to secure support.

“I am thrilled to join the talented staff of the Chrysler Museum to bring even more amazing art and creative opportunities to the greater Hampton Roads community,” Wilson said. “Art, and especially the Chrysler Museum, have played important roles in my life, and I look forward to sharing that passion to engage benefactors and inspire robust support for the Museum.”

Museum Director Erik Neil said Wilson is uniquely qualified to lead development at the Chrysler. “Kate has a wealth of experience sustaining and growing nonprofit institutions, and deep knowledge of the philanthropic landscape in Virginia that will support the Museum’s goals,” he said. “Her demonstrated ability to connect with existing donors while cultivating new patrons will be a tremendous asset.”

Wilson most recently served with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation as the Director of Principal and Major Giving in Virginia. She planned, managed and completed the $21 million comprehensive campaign to build the Brock Environmental Center in Virginia Beach. Previously, she held development positions with WHRO Public Media and the Virginia Opera Association in Norfolk. Before turning to fundraising, she worked in media and technology in New York and northern Virginia.

As a leader in her field, Wilson presented at The Chronicle of Philanthropy’s Philanthropy NEXT Conference in 2016 and is a member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals. At the Chrysler Museum, she will oversee gift cultivation, project fundraising, grant writing, board engagement, special events, and donor relations.

Wilson, a 1995 graduate of the University of Virginia with a degree in Art History, has deep roots in Hampton Roads. She graduated from Norfolk Academy and currently serves as president of the Norfolk Academy Alumni Association. She also serves on the board of the Irene Leache Memorial Foundation, an organization with close and longstanding ties to the Chrysler Museum.
