Elizabeth Reynolds Silverstein,
Beth has served the nonprofit sector for more than 35 years, specializing in transformational giving, vision casting, inspiring Boards and building passionate, effective teams. Her career began at The Carter Center of Emory University where she discovered the power and promise of inspired thinking. Since those early days, she has been focused on challenging colleagues and donors to dream big dreams and facilitating the transformation which happens when donor passion intersects with institutional aspiration.
Beth has been instrumental in cultivating major gifts for capital campaigns in healthcare, presidential libraries, higher education and K-12 independent schools. Prior to Kansas City, she spent the majority of her career in Tampa, Florida, where she was highly effective at facilitating philanthropic support for medical institutions including The Moffitt Cancer Center, University Community Hospital and the University of South Florida Health Sciences System. In recent years, she served as the sole development professional at Academy at the Lakes, a small K-12 independent college preparatory school. In addition to revitalizing the overall development program, she led the school through a successful capital campaign and helped shepherd the Board through a strategic planning initiative, including defining the organizational culture, values and vision.
Beth is a graduate of Emory University, and received her MBA from the University of South Florida.
