The Nature Conservancy in Georgia (TNC) has selected Stacey Sinkiewicz as Director of Development following an extensive search. Sinkiewicz, a fundraising professional with 20 years of experience, served as interim director throughout 2020. In that time, she stewarded TNC’s successful $36 million Nature Unites Us campaign which raised funds for critically important land and water conservation projects across the state.

With a team of fundraisers based in Atlanta and in Brunswick, Georgia, Sinkiewicz leads a comprehensive development program that secures significant philanthropic support from individuals, corporations, and foundations based in Georgia to support The Nature Conservancy’s conservation priorities in Georgia and around the world. 

“Inspiring philanthropists with TNC’s conservation goals and successes is an incredible job to have,” says Sinkiewicz. “I’m eager to take on this role permanently with a strong team and engaged board leadership in place. Together, we are dedicated to cultivating and nurturing the new and established relationships needed to sustain and advance the Conservancy’s strategic priorities, such as addressing climate change adaptation and mitigation.”

Sinkiewicz joined TNC’s development team in 2014, following her role as Piedmont Park Conservancy’s Director of Development. Her professional experience also includes fundraising positions with other well-respected cultural organizations, including Fernbank Museum of Natural History and the Atlanta History Center.

“Stacey is a strong strategist and passionate conservationist with the experience and expertise to lead the Georgia development team into the future,” says Deron Davis, executive director, The Nature Conservancy in Georgia. “Her demonstrated fundraising success and ability to communicate TNC’s vision to broad audiences, are enormous benefits to TNC.”

Sinkiewicz earned a Bachelor of Arts in English from University of Georgia. She volunteers for human rights organizations and is an active member of her community in Buckhead.
