The Amon Carter Museum of American Art has appointed Libby Tilley as the head of museum advancement. She will help guide the museum’s annual fundraising strategy including the cultivation, solicitation and stewardship of donors. Tilley also will oversee the membership manager and the corporate relations and events manager.
Tilley brings two decades of experience spanning the areas of public relations, marketing, event planning and fundraising. Most recently she served as development director for Susan G. Komen in Austin. She also worked in development and external affairs for The Contemporary Austin and Artpace San Antonio, and in public relations with Clear Channel Exhibitions and the Dallas Symphony Orchestra.
“Libby is a key addition to the Amon Carter,” Guy C. Vanderpool, director of development and communications, said in a news release. “She has extensive experience in fundraising and corporate relations, and she will have an important role in broadening the museum’s financial support.”
