Sarah Chaffee

New Hampshire Humanities is pleased to welcome Sarah Chaffee of Concord as our new Director of Development. 

In her resource development roles at the Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains and in higher education, most recently at Merrimack College, Sarah successfully managed and grew support at all levels, including annual giving strategies and implementation, stewardship and cultivation of donors, and building planned giving programs.

She has a B.A. in art and an M. Ed., both from the University of New Hampshire. Sarah spent 21 years as the owner and principal of McGowan Fine Art, a commercial business focusing on private art sales and corporate consulting. During this time, she developed relationships and collaborated with many of the cultural organizations across Northern New England. 

"I look forward to serving the community of my home state again, and connecting it to our rich, cultural resources," Sarah says.

Sarah lives in Concord with her husband and in her spare time enjoys walking, visiting art museums, reading history, and flower gardening.
