DANVERS, Mass. --- Care Dimensions, the largest provider of hospice services in Massachusetts, has named Mary Simboski as the new Vice President for Philanthropy. In that role, she will lead efforts to build private support of Care Dimensions’ work and mission. Simboski has more than 30 years of experience in fundraising for nonprofit organizations and for the last six years has served as the Vice President of Development at the Archdiocese of Boston.
“We’re very fortunate to have someone with Mary’s depth of experience and knowledge of our communities as our new VP for Philanthropy,” said Diane Stringer, President & CEO. She will be a great asset as we work to grow our philanthropy program throughout the 90 communities we serve.”

“Care Dimensions has expanded to meet urgent, growing needs in the region. Our goal is to invite the community to provide the philanthropic support that is essential to our mission. This is an exciting time to be joining Care Dimensions. The new Greater Boston Hospice House, the expansion of our pediatric hospice program and other initiatives to bring the highest level of care closer to our patients and families creates a variety of opportunities for increased philanthropic and community involvement,” said Simboski .
