New Brunswick, NJ (March 5, 2014) – New Jersey Community Capital (NJCC) is pleased to announce the appointment of Earl Plante as the agency’s first Director of Resource Development.  Mr. Plante will oversee a dynamic and growing team that coordinates all necessary revenue generation activities and communication responses to external agency stakeholders.

Mr. Plante is recognized as a longtime advocate and executive leader of major non-profits across the country and most recently served as Chief Executive Office of SF Pride, overseeing the annual production of the celebration and parade, which is the largest gathering of LGBT people/allies in the nation and largest event in the city, generating nearly $1 billion in economic activity every year. During his tenure, Plante doubled the budget, retired a sizeable debt, and dramatically expanded strategic community partnerships overall.

Mr. Plante has devoted his entire career to nonprofit organizations in the front lines of social and economic justice, including serving as Development Director for the Latino Commission on AIDS; Executive Director of One Voice PAC; Chief Operating Officer for the National Black Justice Coalition; and Development Director for the National Minority AIDS Council. Earl also was the Development Director for Union Settlement Association, the largest social services agency in East Harlem, New York City. Earl has also held previous senior management positions at Funders Concerned About AIDS and the Empire State Pride Agenda.

“We are extremely pleased that Earl has accepted the new role of Director of Resource Development and that he will be joining our team,” said Wayne T. Meyer, President of NJCC. “Earl’s broad-based experience makes him an ideal choice for our work and to move NJCC forward. NJCC’s Board and staff are eager to have the benefit of Earl’s passion, skills and vision in providing leadership in the revenue generation and media relations arenas.”

“I am honored by this exciting opportunity to serve,” said Mr. Plante. “I look forward to working closely with NJCC’s leadership, funders, and the rich diversity of community stakeholders as we continue to build upon its groundbreaking mission and legacy.” Mr. Plante transitioned to the NJ area in mid-February.
