DIRECTOR OF DEVELOPMENT

April Churchill


April has lived in Montana for over two decades. She moved to Bozeman to attend Montana State University, graduating in 2011 with a degree in Community Health and Business Administration. Her love for nonprofit work began when she volunteered with Special Olympics and Haven. Later, she went on to work for nonprofits in the Gallatin Valley for five years doing administration, marketing, and fundraising for several local organizations including Warriors and Quiet Waters Foundation.

Now working at Fay Ranches as the Land Investor and Summit Coordinator, she can use her marketing and event planning background to contribute to the team. She is also using her nonprofit experience in her role as the Director of Development for the Fay Ranches Community Foundation. Giving back to America’s rural communities is something she feels passionate about because she knows how strong those communities are and the resources they contribute to the rest of America.

When she is not in the office, she spends time with her fiancé and their two dogs fishing, hiking, hunting, and enjoying the beauty Montana has to offer.
