    Donna Lieberman is the Chief Development Officer and a member of the executive team of the Apollo Theater. In that role, she is responsible for raising more than $10 million annually to support the organization’s artistic, education and community programs and over the past five years has increased contributed revenue by 47%. She also directs the organization’s special campaigns, which have raised tens of millions of dollars for large scale artistic programs, facility enhancements and cash reserve.  The Apollo’s current capital campaign has raised $63 million against its goal of $70 million. The campaign supports the creation of two new theaters in the Victoria Restoration project, a public/private partnership, the restoration of the historic Apollo Theater and includes $20 million for program expansion and reserves.


    As Director of Strategic Gifts, New York for Feeding America, she worked with City Harvest and the Food Bank for New York City to raise $1M+ gifts for the collaborative Campaign for a Hunger-Free America, a multi-year, $500M effort to change the history of hunger in America.  Lieberman has held senior level positions at The New York Botanical Garden, the Museum of the City of New York and the School of American Ballet among others.  She was Director of the Campaign for New York City Ballet, raising more than $58 million for the Ballet’s first endowment campaign.  Lieberman served as the founding Managing Director for MAKOR, a center for Jewish life and culture on Manhattan’s upper west side; and as Managing Director of the WPA Theatre.
