Hajar Logan has been appointed Executive Director of Community Works, a fundraising collaborative for community-based organizations. Logan resides in Dorchester and brings a long commitment to social justice work. Her range of talents and skills will enhance outreach and visibility for this 35-year-old organization that raises funds for a collaborative of local grassroots organizations, primarily through employee charitable giving programs.
Logan was a business development and organizational management consultant for more than 10 years, where she gained experience developing change processes and business development structures for small business growth. As an economic development practitioner, she spent several years developing a model for economic empowerment that focuses on community economic development in disenfranchised communities.
Logan will help strengthen both existing campaigns as well as create new strategies for developing a broader donor base for Community Works. She seeks to build communities that will more effectively address social justice concerns.
“The board of directors is excited that Hajar has agreed to be our new executive director. This represents a new chapter for Community Works, and we invite our partners to continue to be part of this journey with us,” noted Craig Norberg-Bohm, Community Works’ Board Chairperson.
Founded in 1982, Community Works is a cooperative fundraising effort among community-based and social justice oriented organizations. Its goal is to develop a stable and growing source of support for member organizations, primarily through partnership with local businesses as part of their employee giving campaigns.
Currently, 52 private, public, and nonprofit employers in the greater Boston area, with over 120,000 employees, permit payroll deduction contributions to Community Works, including the city, state, and federal government campaigns. Since 1982, it has raised over $5 million for our member organizations.
