Tom DiFiore


Executive Managers

Since joining NCDS in 1995, Tom DiFiore has directed campaigns as an on-site campaign director, supervised campaigns and directors as vice president of project operations and support, and helped develop new clients and markets as a senior officer. Because of his “up-close and personal” experience with hundreds of campaigns and feasibility analyses, he offers NCDS clients valuable insight and knowledge of all fundraising issues.

As a former operations and business development manager in Fortune 100 and entrepreneurial companies, Tom brings a keen sense and intuitive approach to the challenging tasks of economic and community development. His business and fundraising careers have given him the perspective and ability to position non-profit programs and organizations to attract maximum support from corporations, foundations and governments.

His involvement in campaigns that have raised hundreds of millions of dollars for a wide range of projects is a great source of pride and satisfaction for Tom. Consequently, he makes sure to monitor an organization’s progress during and after the implementation of a project funded by an NCDS campaign.

Tom holds a B.A. in economics from the University of Virginia and an M.B.A. from Georgia State University. He is a native Atlantan, where he lives with his wife, Kristine and their children, Grace and Luke.

"The best part about working for NCDS is the gratification that comes from making a real impact on the communities and organizations we serve."

“NCDS has been our fundraising firm of choice since they first helped us devise the Forward Sioux Falls operating model in 1987, and raised $1.8 million to implement it.  Not only is the firm exceptionally skilled at raising money, they also understand the importance of generating buy-in and sustained commitment.  NCDS has helped us exceed goal in seven campaigns, the latest of which has a $15.5 million target, and when the current campaign is completed, NCDS will have helped us raise $53 million to fund our initiatives.  Our top community leaders expect the best from our organization, and the exceptional team at NCDS always works hard to help us exceed those expectations.”
