Fargo, North Dakota – Plains Art Museum, along with its board of directors, is thrilled to announce the addition of Janet Zinke in the new role of Director of Impactful Giving.

A graduate of NDSU, Zinke, has been fundraising for area nonprofits since 2001, 16 years at The Village Family Services and four at Dakota Boys & Girls Ranch.
