Museum of Vancouver welcomes Amanda Burrows as new Director of Development

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 29, 2016

VANCOUVER, BC –  The Museum of Vancouver (MOV) is pleased to announce that Amanda Burrows has joined its team of passionate advocates for the city. As the Director of Development, Burrows will head up the Museum’s fundraising efforts, fostering relationships with donors, sponsors, and the Museum’s membership.

She comes to MOV with more than eight years of experience raising funds for arts organizations. In addition to her experience at the Art Gallery of Ontario and the Guggenheim NYC, Burrows recently served as the Associate Director of Annual Giving for the Vancouver Opera, where she created the Young Patrons Circle that engaged the next generation of arts patrons.

Burrows was the ideal candidate for this position after studying Fundraising Management at Ryerson University, and having earned a Master’s Degree in Museum Studies at the University of Toronto.

As a connector, Burrows has developed programs that stimulate philanthropic behaviour. She sits on the Boards for Contemporary Art Gallery, and Passion Foundation, that encourage using arts for community involvement, civic engagement and social change.

 “I am thrilled to join the MOV team as it moves forward,” Burrows announced. “Several years ago, the Museum’s provocative programming helped to put them on my radar, and I am extremely excited to apply my experience as a fundraiser, museum practitioner, and Vancouverite to such an innovative and inclusive institution.”

“Amanda has wholeheartedly embraced MOV’s new vision to inspire a social connected, civically engaged city,” explained MOV CEO Nancy Noble.

Burrows is excited to explore new linkages in the local community, and get more Vancouverites involved with their Museum.
