Baltimore – Penn-Mar Human Services, the region’s leading provider of services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), is proud to announce that Kathy Rogers, chief advancement officer and executive director of the Penn-Mar Foundation, has been included in The Daily Record’s 2024 Maryland Top 100 Women. The Daily Record is Maryland’s only daily news publication covering business, legal and legislative news.

Beginning in 1996, The Daily Record’s Maryland’s Top 100 Women recognizes high-achieving Maryland women who are making an impact through their leadership, community service and mentoring. Winners are selected by past Top 100 Women and business leaders based on professional and community involvement, corporate and nonprofit board memberships, and mentoring experience, among many other categories and qualifications.

“I am honored to be included in The Daily Record’s 2024 Maryland’s Top 100 Women,” says Rogers. “The professionals on this list are all creating new opportunities for their peers and carving out a path for future generations. And perhaps most importantly, they are all making a difference in their community- which is what we do at Penn-Mar every day.”

In her role as Penn-Mar’s Chief Advancement Officer, Rogers leads the strategy to advance the mission of Penn-Mar through philanthropy and public awareness. As Executive Director of the Penn-Mar Foundation, Rogers supports the work of Penn-Mar Human Services by securing the financial resources needed to provide innovative and high-quality supports for people with an IDD. Rogers has over 20 years of leadership experience in marketing, public relations, philanthropy, advocacy, and community development for national organizations across Washington, D.C. and greater Maryland. Rogers joined Penn-Mar in 2016 as the group’s chief development officer, after a decade with the American Diabetes Association.

“Much of the success and growth that Penn-Mar has enjoyed in recent years is because of Kathy,” says Penn-Mar CEO Greg Miller. “I’ve had the privilege to work with Kathy on some of our most important programs and campaigns, and each time, I am just amazed at her insight and determination to get things done. For me, Kathy being named one of Maryland’s Top 100 Women is an extremely well-deserved accomplishment and I’m proud to have her on our team.”

Most recently, Rogers was pivotal in the success of Penn-Mar’s historic $7.5 million Building Bold Futures Campaign, the largest in the nonprofit’s history. The funds will be utilized for new services, programs, equipment, and endowments that allow the group to expand and grow its scope. Outside of Penn-Mar, Rogers also serves on several local non-profit boards, including the Baltimore Women’s Advisory Board of the Greater Baltimore Committee (GBC) and is a graduate of the GBC LEADERship Class of 2010.
