Terry Dyer doesn’t sit still for long. The community activist has joined CAN Community Health as their new Director of Donor Development. CAN and Dyer made the announcement this week. 

“CAN is a wonderful organization providing medical services testing, education, and full comprehensive care locally and nationally,” Dyer said.

As part of his new job, Dyer will be on the road a lot.

“We are excited to have Terry join us at this pivotal moment of growth and development,” CAN Chief Communications Officer Roger Capote said. “We welcome his keen ability to establish new partnerships, engage donors who share our mission, and to brand our successful model of health care.”

Dyer says the job will include identifying, developing, retaining, and nurturing a portfolio of individual and institutional donors. He will also work on donor engagement and finding corporate, governmental, and grant money.

Dyer most recently worked at the World AIDS Museum (WAM) in Fort Lauderdale. Though only there for about a year, he introduced the organization’s new fundraiser, the Red Dress/Dress Red gala franchise. The event and his speaking engagements helped raise their profile locally and nationally.

He resigned from WAM in early June, and began his new job with CAN about five weeks later.

Before that, he worked at SunServe. Dyer is also the author of “Letters To A GAY BLACK BOY,” a memoir that opened up a conversation of racism, homophobia, and inequality. He has a degree from Sacramento State University in communications, with an emphasis on public relations.

Before moving to South Florida, Dyer worked in the private sector with Fortune 500 companies.
