Alch assumes senior development post

“Most people in CFANS think we’re the foundation. We’re not. We’re at the service of CFANS. We work for CFANS and CFANS interests,” says Amy Alch, newly promoted to the position of CFANS Senior Development Officer. She’s determined to correct that perspective. “I am fortunate to have found a career where people get joy from giving. The work that we do in CFANS promotes better health, a better environment, and a better economy in state, country, world.”

Although Amy recalls a youth spent in Golden Valley, Minn., where her connection with nature meant that “I used to take the TV out in the backyard in the summer,” the real roots to the U and CFANS runs deeper. “My dad graduated from the U in animal husbandry and took over his dad’s meat market, and my mom grew up surrounded by the wheat fields of North Dakota.”

Amy, a graduate of the Carlson School of Management, joined the CFANS development team in 2012. Previously, she worked in admissions, development and marketing at the Talmud Torah of St. Paul. Contact Alch with your questions about CFANS development.
