The Dubuque Symphony Orchestra (DSO) welcomes Kara Murphy as its new Director of Development. Murphy has been advancing the missions of non-profit organizations for more than 20 years. Most recently, she worked for the Finley Health Foundation, partnering with donors to support UnityPoint Health – Finley Hospital’s Grandview Expansion Capital Campaign, the Pediatric Therapy Center Expansion Project, as well as medical equipment and program needs. In her new role, Kara is most excited about “becoming immersed in the arts and culture scene of Dubuque, and continuing to build on the DSO’s strong fundraising program.”
Kara is a native of Dubuque, who has lived in Cedar Falls, IA; Kaiserslautern, Germany; and Omaha, NE before returning home.
