Erin Peck Yarema, Director of Major and Planned Giving, acquired a passion for development from her time as a college student receiving scholarship support and witnessing dynamic change on campus fueled by generous donors.

Working in the fundraising field since 2003, Erin is inspired by working with people to make transformational gifts that intersect a donor’s philanthropic goals and Good Shepherd Food Bank’s strategic vision.

A native Mainer and graduate of Waynflete School and Bard College, Erin lives in Yarmouth and serves on the board of the Yarmouth Education Foundation. Erin especially enjoys time spent with family, including her son Nicholas, partner J, and his children William and Clara, tending to gardens, preparing and enjoying delicious food, home improvement projects, and soaking up the Maine outdoors in all seasons.
