Don Sommese

Don is a practicing financial planner with Morgan Stanley Smith Barney and specializes in comprehensive wealth management planning and understands that fundraising is one of the primary functions of a member of a nonprofit Board of Directors. He is active in his church and the Knights of Columbus Council, and was instrumental in establishing a scholarship fund. He’s currently organizing a fundraising concert which he hopes will draw an audience of 900. The New Hampshire Cultural Diversity Council’s mission is to increase awareness of the need for communication, understanding and respect among people of ethnically and racially diverse backgrounds. Don served on the Council for several years (2005-2007) as Secretary. Don credits being raised in a “melting pot city in New Jersey” with his appreciation for diversity and different perspectives. He also serves on the Nashua, NH Chamber of Commerce’s Political Advocacy Committee, which examines how politics affects business, and he is very interested in Girl Scouts’ advocacy efforts.
