Amy Price, Director of Development and Communications

Amy Price joined Front Steps in February of 2019. She has been a Director of Development for several Austin-area nonprofits in her 20+-year career—raising over $120 million dollars for programming to make our community a better place. She is a sought-after presenter and trainer in her field, and one of her public/private fundraising ventures was recognized by the US Forest Service as “one of the most significant conservation events of 2012.” Amy grew up in San Antonio and came to Austin to attend the University of Texas at Austin—and no matter where else she moved after college, Austin always called her back. She volunteers at the Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders, where her daughter is a high school senior. Her son is an activist and currently working on an organic farm in Washington State. She’s on the Board of Directors for Out Youth Austin, a local nonprofit that offers youth of all sexual orientations and gender identities a place where they are loved and accepted for exactly who they are. Amy is currently working on a book about nonprofit development work to share the lessons she has learned with an even larger audience–she is often heard to say that, “this work is a relay, not a prize fight, and nonprofits and their staff should lift each other and share resources/opportunities for the good of the community.”
