Lynn Valle

Director of Leadership Gifts

Lynn has returned to Deerfield after a five year “sabbatical” at her alma mater, Smith College. During those five years, Lynn served as Senior Philanthropic Officer, working with alumnae and parents in support of Smith’s $450M Women for the World campaign. She operated as the lead gift officer in the mid-Atlantic, Northern California and the Pacific Northwest, and worked with donors in New York City.

In her new role, Lynn will partner with alumni and parents who are interested in exploring leadership giving opportunities at Deerfield. You may remember that Lynn worked for five+ years as a member of Deerfield’s Annual Support team, first as an Assistant and then as a Special Gifts Officer.

A resident of Franklin County, Lynn is starting her 6th year as both a Development Committee Chair/Community Board Member to the Center School in Greenfield (pre K – 8) and as the Smith Club of Franklin County’s Book Award Coordinator and Admission Volunteer.
