is executive director of The Tri-Faith Initiative
in Omaha, a unique partnership of Temple Israel, the Episcopal Diocese of Omaha, and the American Institute of Islamic Studies and Culture planning a development with a synagogue, a church, a mosque, and an interfaith center on adjacent properties. She returned to nonprofit work after a 23-year break to run her own business while her children grew up. Earlier she was a nonprofit executive in the arts world for more than 15 years and held a CFRE
designation. “The basics of fundraising are still the same,” she says, “but the tools available for communication, record keeping, and analysis that harness the power of computers and the Internet make a huge difference today.” Nancy holds an M.A. in arts management from the University of Illinois and a B.A. from Antioch College.
