NEA Foundation Names New Director of Development

Michael DiMaggio will join the NEA Foundation as its director of development.

He comes to the 40-year-old NEA Foundation from the Council of Chief State School Officers, where he spent seven years creating their corporate partner programs and oversaw the organization’s development efforts. At the CCSSO, he worked on an initiative that provides support and technical assistance to state education agency officials in low-performing, high- poverty schools and alternative education high schools.

DiMaggio was once a special education teacher and high school athletic coach, according to a release from the foundation. The NEA Foundation gives out grants to teachers, education support staff, and higher education faculty to improve student learning in public schools and colleges.
