Diane Burre Ludwig, a thirty-four year fundraising professional and Fulton native, believes strongly in the power of the volunteer model in fundraising and of philanthropy’s ability to help build strong, supportive communities.

Diane enjoys the many facets of non-profits and has served in various development/fundraising capacities for public television, higher education, United Way, and mental health and children’s agencies in both Missouri and Oklahoma. Her specialties include: annual fund, strategic planning, governance and bylaws, board development, fundraising training, development plans, marketing, finances, reporting, and ethics.

Diane is an active member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), and held the CFRE (Certified Fund Raising Executive) designation for twenty-four years.   Diane also taught fundraising and nonprofit governance in Washington University’s Nonprofit Management Program in St. Louis.

She created DBL Development Services in 2012 after semi-retiring and relocating to Fulton in order to continue to serve the nonprofit community. In November of 2014, she was hired to be the part-time director of the Fulton Public Schools Foundation. As a Fulton High graduate of 1964, Diane is pleased to be able to help the school district continue providing excellent educational experiences for all Fulton’s students.
