We are thrilled to welcome Amanda Richard to The Branch family as our Chief Development Officer!
Amanda has worked as a fundraiser for over 17 years at some of Nashville’s most notable non-profits, including Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, Nashville Zoo, and Adventure Science Center.
Growing up in rural Ohio, Amanda saw how food insecurity affected the daily lives of her neighbors and how the community worked together to support and care for those experiencing hardship. Now, as the new Chief Development Officer at The Branch, Amanda will work with individuals, companies, churches, and foundations to create meaningful partnerships to help southeast Nashville, where she’s lived for almost 20 years, build a thriving community.
In her spare time, Amanda enjoys visiting all the new restaurants in Nashville with her husband, creating recipes for her blog, serving at her church, being an amateur photographer, and reading every book she can get her hands on.
Welcome to the Branch family, Amanda. We are honored to have you.
