In her role as The Nature Conservancy’s Regional Director of Development for North America, Amy Tidovsky is focused on maximizing philanthropy in support of TNC’s highest conservation priorities. A highlight of this work has been the development and partnership of the North America Cabinet, a group of leading Conservancy volunteer advisors.
A 20-plus-year veteran of the Conservancy, Amy began her tenure in the North Carolina Chapter, where she served as Senior Associate Director of Philanthropy through multiple successful capital campaigns and as lead fundraiser for Land for Tomorrow, which dramatically expanded public funding for land and water conservation in North Carolina. Following her time with the North Carolina Chapter, Amy served as a Philanthropy Advisor, supporting other fund raisers across The Nature Conservancy through consultation, training and special projects, including the Experience 2015 Conservation Learning Series for which she was recognized with a Divisional “Breakthrough Award.”
From 2010-2013, as TNC's Director of Philanthropy for Climate Change, she was responsible for fund raising for efforts to reduce emissions from tropical deforestation, make natural solutions more widely embraced responses to floods and droughts and for supportive public policies. A highlight of this work was helping secure philanthropic support to complete a US-Indonesia debt-for-nature swap, the first such transaction with climate-explicit objectives.
Prior to joining The Nature Conservancy, Amy served as a reporter in Colorado for a weekly newspaper and as an editor in the Office of Public Relations of Louisiana State University. She holds Master’s degrees in Comparative Literature and in Journalism and a B.A. in English Literature from LSU.
Amy lives with her family in Raleigh, North Carolina and enjoys playing classical piano and rooting for her home state football teams, the LSU Tigers and New Orleans Saints.
