Annie Murphy joined the Empreinte team after serving as the Director of Development for The Pluta Cancer Center Foundation. During her time at Pluta, Annie oversaw a $1 million dollar budget with a focus on grant writing, donor cultivation, special events, database management, annual appeals, board development, and community engagement. Annie successfully led a capital campaign to fund the revitalization of the waiting area at Pluta Cancer Center, through both grant writing and strategic stewardship of high-level donors. Her variety of skills and interests allow her to work with non-profits in a multitude of ways.
As a breast cancer survivor, who was treated at Pluta, Annie served as a natural ambassador for the impactful services and programs that Pluta provides to those affected by a cancer diagnosis. Annie spoke at many community events and fundraisers to better connect Pluta’s mission with the Greater Rochester Region.
