Amy Livingston was Director of Development at IAALS, which she joined in June 2021.
She brought to IAALS over 25 years of experience in the nonprofit sector as an executive leader, strategic thought partner (C-Suite/Boards), philanthropic advisor, consultant, and board chair/member in the fields of healthcare, education, and conservation. Most recently, she consulted with nonprofit clients and philanthropists to secure multiple transformational gifts ($1M–$5M) to strengthen maternal and newborn healthcare delivery systems in East and West Africa.
Prior to consulting, she founded and led the Global Health Foundation through securing a $1M charitable gift, launching investments in innovative solutions that address systemic inequities and eliminate barriers that deny access to quality and comprehensive healthcare services. Livingston began fundraising as a teenager and when volunteering at a nonprofit hospice whose clients were in the final stages of their courageous battle with HIV/AIDS. At a young age, she witnessed the devastating intersection of vulnerable populations, disease, fear and ignorance which resulted in a commitment to—and a career in—bending the arc towards justice.
Amy received her MA in International Development with a Certificate in Global Health Affairs from the Josef Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver and a BA in International Affairs and French from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
