Congrats Andi Espenshade (‘14) on your new position! We’re so excited for you and the LGBT Center of Raleigh.
Please give a warm welcome to our NEW Director of Development, Andi (he/they)!
Andi is beyond thrilled to be starting as the Director of Development for the LGBT Center of Raleigh! Having grown up in the Triangle, they lived in Asheville for several years before moving out to Oregon for their Master of Nonprofit Management, and now joins our team after fundraising for Seattle's Planned Parenthood affiliate for the past two years.
Andi is excited to be able to support the LGBTQ+ community in this role after finding their way to fundraising through their drag persona, Chartreuse Dynasty O'Hara. Working with the wonderfully diverse community of Raleigh will be a fantastic opportunity to work with every facet of the LGBTQ+ community, put their fundraising experience to work, and bring a decade's worth of drag and fabulousness to the LGBT Center's fundraising efforts.
When not in the office (or heels), they enjoy spending time with their husband: streaming the latest true crime series, hiking along nature walks, taking care of their two cats, Solomon and Purrsephone, and playing hours and hours and hours of Animal Crossing.
When they're in the office, please feel free to reach out to them with any fundraising / donation questions you may have at [email protected]!
