CEW Welcomes New Development Director

We're excited to introduce Mary Lynn Stevens as CEW's new development director.  Mary Lynn's extensive background encompasses all phases of fundrasing - from corporate and foundation support to major gifts, annual funds and special events.

Much of Mary Lynn's past experience has been at the University of Michigan, both at the Alumni Association and, for the past ten years, as the Director of Corporate and Foundation Relations and Special Projects at UM-Dearborn.  Before that, she spend over ten years as a curator and program director at The Henry Ford.

CEW will benefit not only from Mary Lynn's expertise but also from her strong commitment to our mission.  She explains, "As a graduate of a women's college, a mother of two who was the principal breadwinner for most of my career, and a former public historian of domestic life in the US, I know and feel women's issues deeply and on many levels."

Another, unexpected aspect of having Mary Lynn at CEW: Her son, Will Heininger, is currently a defensive lineman for the University of Michigan football team.  So we'll all have a greater reason to cheer on the Wolverines!
