Kyle Cheseborough, Associate for Development & Membership
Kyle Cheseborough supports ICCR’s fundraising, membership cultivation and retention campaigns. He builds on a long administrative career of rendering high-quality service in challenging development and membership roles. Much of that time has focused on education and advocacy in not-for-profit settings in New York City. Just prior to joining ICCR Kyle assisted the Executive Director and development team of New Alternatives for Children, a leading social service agency devoted to the welfare of poor children with special medical needs in birth, foster and adoptive families. He co-managed NAC’s donor database and played a key role in researching prospective board members and individuals for NAC’s major donor campaign.
Kyle returns to The Interchurch Center where he served for four years as Special Assistant to the Executive Director of The American Guild of Organists, a global membership organization and publishers of The American Organist magazine. While there he served as the Executive Director’s administrative support liaison to the National Council, Regional Councilors and to the Executive Committee. Internally, Kyle supported the director of development, membership coordinator, financial administrator, program assistant and the magazine editorial personnel.
For many years he maintained a professional music career as a church singer, oratorio soloist and opera singer. Kyle sang with the choirs of the Cathedral of the Incarnation in Garden City, Long Island. And then for more than a decade with the choirs of Grace Church in New York. As a member of the Grace Church congregation, he was proud to have his professional administrative and music careers converge in the search for the current Organist and Master Choristers. Kyle facilitated the work of the committee that vetted, interviewed and auditioned all candidates for that position.
