DALLAS, Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Pursuant Ketchum, a full-service, comprehensive fundraising and communications consulting firm, announced today that Amanda Roberts has joined the company as senior consultant, consulting services. Roberts brings with her more than a decade of higher education fundraising experience. Roberts' background in capital campaigns, major gift development, annual funds and scholarship programs will allow her to serve Pursuant Ketchum's clients with a truly comprehensive approach.
"Pursuant Ketchum serves an amazing clientele of nonprofits and impacts lives not only in these organizations, but also countless others who benefit from them," says Roberts. "I am honored to have the opportunity to join this team and contribute to this incredible mission."
Roberts' passion for collegiate athletic fundraising began while she was a student-athlete at the University of Notre Dame. Pursuing that passion, she began her career serving as the assistant administrator for the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) – helping to implement a pilot program designed to create alternate funding sources for athletic departments.
Before joining Pursuant Ketchum, Roberts served with athletic fundraising programs at both the University of Tennessee and the University of Oklahoma. Her extensive experience in fundraising and ticket operations allows Roberts to bring thought-leadership to Pursuant Ketchum clients and their athletic programs. Prior to Pursuant Ketchum, Roberts also served as the university relations coordinator at Chesapeake Energy, managing the annual university giving program.
