Angela Bailey began her career working with nonprofit, direct service institutions. While her passion was in women and children’s issues, she found herself doing special events, writing grants, and working with major donors to support her direct services efforts. After some years, it became evident that not only was Bailey a skilled fundraiser, but that she enjoyed the work and decided to dedicate her efforts to fundraising full time.
Since beginning her second career, Bailey has raised over a million dollars in events alone, participated in a capital campaign raising $3.2 million in a six-county region of Kentucky which included some of the poorest counties in the country, and developed lasting relationships with community members to elicit their help in fundraising and community events.
Since beginning her career at Frontier Nursing University in 2014, Bailey has taken on several different roles including Associate Director of Development and Alumni Relations, and Director of Clinical Outreach and Placement. She was named the Chief Advancement Officer in 2019.
Bailey holds a BA in Communication Studies from Eastern Kentucky University and an MA in Organizational Leadership from Indiana Wesleyan University. In 2020 Angela earned the Certified Fund Raising Professional designation (CFRE).
