When considering the role of the Director of Development for Greystone Programs, Inc., the Hopewell Junction-based nonprofit dedicated to supporting children, adults and families living with autism and other developmental disabilities, it’s hard to imagine a better person for the job than Sara Greenberg-Hoye. Strategic, detail-oriented, and fiercely passionate, the married mother of seven children (ranging in age from 8 to 30) is motivated by her youngest son Harry, who was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome in 2015. “I kept wondering, ‘What now?’ Once we did find support, I wanted to make sure no one with a new diagnosis had to feel alone,” she explains.

In 2016, Greenberg-Hoye was given the opportunity to do just that at Greystone Programs, where she built new ties to the community while developing innovative fundraisers in support of the nonprofit’s programs, which serve more than 500 individuals in five counties. Under her direction, proceeds from fundraising events increased a whopping 40%. One such signature event is the annual Leap for Autism — a day of music, food, festivities, and the opportunity to skydive in the name of charity. “I leapt for my son Harry, because what mother wouldn’t throw herself out of a plane for her son?” she says.

What is your advice for the next generation of women in business?

“Let your ‘yes’ be ‘yes’ and your ‘no’ be ‘no.’ Build your reputation on integrity.”
