It would be a daunting task for even the most-seasoned fundraising professionals: beginning a multimillion-dollar capital campaign while in the depths of a recession. But for Charles P. Iacono, it proved to be a challenge he was not only capable of meeting but exceeding.

Iacono, 31, is vice president of philanthropy for Home & Hospice Care of Rhode Island. There, he leads and directs all of the statewide organization’s fundraising efforts.

Iacono arrived at Home & Hospice Care as director of philanthropy in May 2007 following a stint as director of institutional advancement at The Prout School in Wakefield. In August 2008, he was promoted to his current position.

The timing of his arrival at the organization could’ve proved problematic – both Rhode Island and the nation were feeling the effects of a deep recession, while Home & Hospice Care was in the midst of its most ambitious fundraising effort, a capital campaign for the Center for Hospice Care and Philip Hulitar Inpatient Center.

Iacono still managed to exceed the campaign’s expectations, leading the effort that brought in $4.5 million for the center. The facility opened in June 2009.

Aside from fundraising, he also serves several other roles for the organization. As a member of Home & Hospice Care’s management team, he also contributes to its strategic planning, operational and infrastructure decision-making. He also has lead the organization’s social media efforts.

As for his passion for fundraising, Iacono credits Arthur Robbins, president of Robbins Properties and a Home & Hospice Care board member. In his 40 Under Forty application, Iacono said Robbins “steadfastly believes that one person can make a difference.” •
