Amanda has served as Houghton’s Grant Writer and Donor Communications Director since January 2017. As a member of the Office of Advancement, it is her primary goal to communicate with the alumni and friends of Houghton College in effective ways that inspire their generosity to support the mission of Houghton College to equip students for tremendous Kingdom impact as scholar-servants.
In addition to working with foundation, government and corporate partners to garner investment in Houghton College, Amanda manages the formal publications of the Office of Advancement. With a background in instrumental performance and arts administration, Amanda brings over a decade of grant writing and fundraising experience to the Advancement Team. Her other fundraising areas of interest include legacy giving, event planning and donor stewardship.
Outside the office, Amanda can be found walking the Houghton Creek with her two boys, reading and discussing books, and occasionally appearing with the Houghton College Symphony. A native of Ohio and a transplant from Indiana, Amanda and her husband, Dan, now enjoy building community and watching their family thrive in Houghton.
