COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A trio of three recent additions to the USA Fencing Membership and Development teams will ensure we serve members better and help unlock new ways for people to financially support our movement.
We invite you to meet Amanda, Brad and Addison below. And if you see them at a future USA Fencing tournament or interact with them by email, we hope you'll welcome them!
Amanda Lilly comes to USA Fencing with seven years of experience in the nonprofit and fundraising sector. Her vast prowess in fundraising and grassroots development will support the continued evolution of the U.S. Fencing Foundation's fundraising strategies and donor outreach.
Previously, Lilly assisted in managing revenue generating programs with USA Triathlon and then with the United States Olympics Paralympic Foundation. She has been a valued member of the Olympic and Paralympic movement for the last three years.
“I always knew one day I wanted to end up back at an NGB making a positive grassroots impact in that sport,” Lilly says. “USA Fencing has given me the opportunity to do just that with supportive co-workers and such a welcoming community. I’m so excited for what the road has in store for this great sport!”
Lilly brings a strong work ethic, communication and marketing skills, and a master’s degree in management of nonprofit organizations.
