Salvation Army's Derek Dugan to join University Healthcare Foundation

Derek B. Dugan, the communications director at The Salvation Army’s Augusta Kroc Center, will become chief development officer at University Healthcare Foundation, effective Monday.

“I will be staying very involved with The Salvation Army and the Kroc Center as this organization and facility is truly and has been a passion of mine for nearly seven years now,” he said in an e-mail announcing the change. “The new challenges and opportunities at University Healthcare Foundation excites me as well and I look forward to my future there.”

The $100 million arts, worship and multipurpose center, which opened in July after six years of planning and construction, is part of the legacy of McDonald’s heiress Joan Kroc, whose $1.7 billion gift to the Salvation Army is being used to plan, construct and permanently support community centers in many cities, including Augusta.
