Dori Flores, a Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE), has proudly served the Central Texas community as a development professional for more than 20 years.
Most recently, Dori concluded her tenure with the Seton Healthcare Family after an extensive career spanning nearly two decades of service and commitment. Throughout her service with three out of five foundations under Seton’s fundraising umbrella, Dori spearheaded a multitude of successful development endeavors, including major special events, annual, major and capital campaigns. Most notably, as Executive Director of The Seton Fund, she led fundraising efforts for 12 Seton facilities and managed an annual fundraising goal of $11 million.
Other notable accomplishments during her career with Seton include assisting with the development of a $5 million endowment for nursing scholarships, raising $15 million to complete the new women’s pavilion at Seton Medical Center Austin, and bringing the Children’s Miracle Network Radiothon to Austin, which resulted in raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas (formerly Children’s Hospital of Austin). In addition to her philanthropic efforts, Dori served in key operations roles with Seton, overseeing real estate investments (including 26 Doors Shopping Center and residential rental properties) that contributed millions of dollars toward Seton’s mission. She also led fundraising initiatives and operations for Seton League House, Seton’s hospitality home away from home for patients and families.
Community engagement, volunteerism and professional development are an integral part of Dori’s life and an area in which she is fiercely passionate. She is a member of the local chapter of Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) and served as the National Philanthropy Day Logistics Chair at the beginning of her fundraising career. As a member of The Junior League of Austin for 15 years, Dori has served on the board, executive committee and in countless other volunteer leader roles. She is a former board member and 501 Council Member for Mission Capital (formerly Greenlights for Nonprofit Success).
