We are pleased to announce that Lindsey Hardegree has joined the staff of the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership as its new Development Director. As Development Director, Lindsey will be working towards achieving the Partnership’s annual fundraising and sponsorship goals, ensuring deeply needed private support for the Atlanta BeltLine’s programs to engage the community and address the project’s social impacts.
“I’ve been in love with Atlanta since I was a little girl growing up in South Georgia,” said Lindsey Hardegree. “The thought that I get to come to work every day and further our city’s growth is thrilling for me. The Atlanta BeltLine is shaping the future of our community, and as Development Director I have the pleasure of sharing that vision with the people and companies who are going to help us achieve its vision.”
Prior to joining the Partnership, Lindsey served as the Special Events & Board Manager for the Alliance Theatre at the Woodruff Arts Center. Her passion for the Atlanta community has surfaced in a variety of ways, including serving as the founding Board Chair for the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network of Atlanta (YNPN Atlanta), which focuses on developing the future leaders of Atlanta’s nonprofit sector.
“At the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership, we are actively working with neighborhoods, businesses, community and faith organizations, as well as other groups to raise general awareness and broad-based support for the Atlanta BeltLine. We’re creating the partnerships that will sustain the Atlanta BeltLine not only through its completion, but for generations to come. That’s why I’m so excited to be joining the Partnership – the Atlanta BeltLine will truly revolutionize how we live and work in this city.”
Lindsey also is active with the Junior League of Atlanta, the Young Professional Leaders Advisory Board for the United Way of Greater Atlanta, and the 1873 Society Club junior board of the Atlanta Humane Society. Lindsey was selected as a 2013 Diversity Fellow by the Association of Fundraising Professionals of Greater Atlanta and received a 2013 Nonprofit Leaders 30 Under 30 Award from the Georgia Center for Nonprofits.
On any given Saturday you can find her perusing the produce at the Peachtree Road Farmers Market or catching a show at one of Atlanta’s many local theatres.
Atlanta BeltLine Partnership programs, including Adopt-the-Atlanta BeltLine, Tours, the Speakers Bureau, and much more, are funded entirely through private donations from corporations, foundations, and supporters like you. Please consider supporting our efforts to build residents’ awareness and ownership of the Atlanta BeltLine (and addressing the social concerns raised by new development around the Atlanta BeltLine) by becoming a member of the Atlanta BeltLine.
