Visionary Leaders and How to Fund Them

Presented by Amy Ragan 




Working for a visionary leader is exciting but making their vision become a reality isn’t always easy! In this session, Ms. Ragan will share her experiences, practical tips and even some funny stories from her years of experience leading the Food Bank’s development team through a time of extraordinary growth for the organization. 


Amy Ragan, Chief Development Officer 

Houston Food Bank


Amy Ragan has built a successful 30-year career in nonprofit fundraising, marketing and special events by working for several organizations including Amigos de las Americas, Sheltering Arms, the Kinkaid School and Family Services of Greater Houston. She became the Director of Development for End Hunger Network in November 2004 and remained in that position until March 2008 when she was promoted to Executive Director.


In November 2008, Ms. Ragan assumed the role of Chief Development Officer for the Houston Food Bank after its successful merger with End Hunger Network. Ms. Ragan has served as the staff lead for three capital campaigns all of which met or exceeded their goals. The most recent campaign to build a high-volume meal production kitchen concluded in 2017 and exceeded its goal.


Ms. Ragan is a member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, is the 2018 recipient of AFP Houston’s Outstanding Fundraising Professional Award and speaks at both local and national conferences. She received her B.A. from Vanderbilt University.
