The South Fork Natural History Museum and Nature Center in Bridgehampton has appointed Diana Aceti as its new director of development, the museum announced this week.
Ms. Aceti, a Sag Harbor resident, comes to the organization, also known as SoFo, from the Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor, where she served in the same position. Prior to that, she was director of external relations and advancement at the Watermill Center, and she spent seven years as director of development at East Hampton’s Ross School.
SoFo is a nonprofit organization that aims to promote the importance of nature and the history of the South Fork through education and research programs at its location on the Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike.
“I am honored to join the team at SoFo as we launch exciting new projects and initiatives to expand our programs, increase awareness of the rich natural heritage of our area, and educate people about our ecosystem,” Ms. Aceti said in a press release. “SoFo is a very important resource that educates and inspires children and adults to become engaged and responsible caretakers of our planet now and for decades to come.”
At the museum, Ms. Aceti will work with Executive Director Frank Quevedo and the board of directors to develop programs and projects to help ensure SoFo’s success.
“We are extremely excited and happy to welcome Diana Aceti as our development director during this important time of growth,” Mr. Quevedo said in the release. Ms. Aceti’s “extensive background in fundraising, marketing and communications will enable us to expand our audience and supporters so that we can continue to give back to the community with more services and educational and research programs.”
