We’re excited to announce that Jennifer Knickerbocker has joined our team as development director.
An experienced development and fundraising professional, Jennifer holds a bachelor’s degree in organizational management from Whitworth University and completed graduate work in public administration at Eastern Washington University. She previously spearheaded development and strategic partnerships for the largest performing arts organization in the Spokane, Washington, region. Most recently, she served as the grants administrator for Spokane Arts, where she designed, built, and implemented a regional grant funding program for arts, culture, and heritage organizations and individual artists.
“I understand the complexities of finding funding,” Jennifer says, “and I’m supportive and compassionate to the issues many artists and community organizations face when working in the arts.”
Jennifer’s experience also includes twelve years of working in arts and educational advocacy in both a professional and voluntary capacity and serving as the chair of the Advisory Commission for Diversity for the city of Renton, the most diverse city in the state of Washington.
“Jennifer brings a valuable perspective, a diverse skillset, and cultural competency to this role,” says Executive Director Lisa Hanson. “We’re thrilled to welcome her to the team.”
We hope you’ll join us in welcoming Jennifer to the Dayton Region. If you’d like to contact her directly, she can be reached at 937-222-2787 ext. 203 or [email protected].
