Little Rock-based nonprofit Arkansas Advocates for Children & Families (AACF) has announced the hiring of Missy Kincaid of Fayetteville as the nonprofit’s first Northwest Arkansas development director.
Kincaid was most recently vice president of development at Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville, where she worked for 18 years. She led a $23 million capital campaign, and her team was responsible for raising $7 million annually from individuals, corporations and foundations.
Before joining the Walton Arts Center, Missy served in Washington, D.C., for 13 years in outreach and administration positions as part of the Clinton administration, for Senator David Pryor, and in the nonprofit sector. She is a graduate of the University of Arkansas.
“Missy’s understanding and appreciation for public policy and its impact on children and families will be a great asset as she strengthens fundraising for our organization,” AACF Executive Director Rich Huddleston said in a statement.
Kincaid will work in AACF’s Springdale office along with Laura Kellams, the Northwest Arkansas director, and Christine Hartman, who works part-time as the regional office coordinator.
