Building a Place for History
Evelyn C. Murphy, Ph.D., is Director of Monmouth County Historical Association in Freehold. With three decades of experience in business, government, and the nonprofit sector she brings a unique perspective to the challenge of funding historical programming. Ms. Murphy oversaw the development and completion of the Association’s groundbreaking exhibition “Micah Williams: Portrait Artist” and its accompanying catalogue, arranging funding of nearly $105,000 through a combination of grants, individual donations, a fundraising reception and a matching gift challenge. Under Ms. Murphy’s leadership, Trustees, Staff and Volunteers are working to engage corporate sponsors and major donors to fund expanded programming.
