Stacey Glassman Mizener has been named the first Executive Director for Metro 1 Community, Metro 1’s recently assimilated philanthropic arm. Stacey will be leading the team to further Metro 1’s commitment to corporate social responsibility through education and the allocation of resources – both time and money – to making a positive impact on the communities it serves. She will also be responsible for all fundraising and programming efforts for Metro 1 Community Initiatives.
At this time, Stacey’s efforts will be concentrated on fundraising for Metro 1 Community’s most ambitious initiative: the Wynwood Greenhouse. This unique space will become a cornerstone of the community with an on-going cultural and educational content. Residents and visitors will enjoy music, art, serene lounges, purified water, and Wi-Fi throughout. The sustainable park will also become the epicenter of the community with culture and engaging public programming. The Greenhouse will beautify the neighborhood and attract people to live, work, play, and learn. The fundraising campaign will serve to construct the part, initiate programing and fund community partnerships that are the heart and soul of the Wynwood Greenhouse.
Stacey served as Vice President of Marketing & Business Development for Metro 1 for the last year and a half, and is responsible for creating and executing a marketing and communications strategy to achieve the goals of the organization and each major company initiative. She overhauled the Metro 1’s new branding campaign and was responsible for creating their company messaging including “We Shape Neighborhoods.” During this time, Stacey curated cultural and community partnerships with eight most-deserving organizations.
Stacey served as the Associate Vice President of Development for the New World Symphony and was a leader in a variety of roles during her ten-year career at the Symphony. Stacey focused on raising significant revenue for the Capital Campaign for the Frank Gehry Campus, as well as the Annual Fund. She created and managed corporate sponsorships, individual donors and memberships. She is the Founder of the now famed young professional group, Friends of New World Symphony, developing a new base for community outreach. As a result of her efforts, the Friends program is flourishing with more than 600 members supporting the Symphony. The Friends program is now a model for membership groups and orchestras worldwide.
