Introducing the Director of Development
January 12, 2016

Nina Zanella, Director of Development

We are very pleased to announce that, starting this January, Nina Zanella has joined AIDS Care Ocean State as the Director of Development. Nina will oversee all fundraising initiatives and revenue streams including grants, donations & special events. 

Nina is Rhode Island native born and raised in Narragansett, RI. She moved to Roanoke, Virginia, with her husband in May 2001 to enjoy time in the Blue Ridge Mountains. In the fall of 2015, Zanella and her husband decided to move back to Rhode Island to be closer to extended family. 

"I attended the University of Rhode Island and have been in Fund Development for the past 27 years. My experience includes fundraising campaigns, events, capital campaigns, grant writing, donor development and stewardship and planned giving initiatives. I am anxiously awaiting for my husband, our two rescued dogs and seven rescued cats to join me in Rhode Island (don't judge... I did work for the Roanoke Valley SPCA). I bring a genuine love of people and a passion for the AIDS Care Ocean State mission and look forward to meeting ACOS supporters and volunteers." 

We are confident that Nina will be an excellent match for this position and a strong asset to the organization. Interested in learning more about supporting AIDS Care Ocean State? You can contact Nina at or by calling 401-521-3603.
