Victoria Castro

Speaking in at for the track.

Victoria Castro, Director of Development at Community Health of South Florida Inc. (CHI) is a proven fundraiser for health organizations that impact her community. She brings over 30 years of progressive experience in  successful fundraising and development expertise to CHI, which provides affordable quality primary and behavioral health care to nearly 80,000 residents in South Florida. Her current focus is to formalize CHI’s fundraising program while raising funds to finish a $5.5 million capital campaign which will establish a Children’s Crisis Center in the southern region of Miami-Dade County.

Castro worked for two decades for the University of Miami (UM). There, she rose through the fundraising ranks at UM’s Miller School of Medicine, where most of her tenure focused on supporting the Department of Pediatrics, Miami Transplant Institute and Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. She was subsequently tapped as senior director of development for UM’s School of Business Administration, for  the school’s department of health sector management and policy. Before joining CHI, she served as senior vice president of development at the Jackson Health Foundation, which only confirmed her love of fundraising for projects that have an immediate impact on the communities she serves.

Gratitude is the lifeblood of Ms. Castro’s work, what drives her and what most often motivates the donors she is expert at finding.
