Amy Lane is the Executive Director for NEEF and NEISD Partnerships. She was hired by NEISD in 2013 as Director of Partnerships.
During her tenure as first a liaison to the Foundation and now as Executive Director, NEEF has more than doubled the amount raised each year for innovative classroom grants and changed their fundraising strategy drastically. The Foundation has given away more than $1 million in grants the past five years and raised half a million for their endowment fund.
Amy previously worked in public relations for the Texas Department of Agriculture and fundraising for former San Antonio Mayor Phil Hardberger and his namesake park, the Hardberger Park Conservancy. Amy received a B.A. in Journalism and Geography from Texas State University and an M.A. in Corporate Communications from Baylor University.
In her spare time, Amy enjoys hiking, reading mysteries, trying every hole-in-the-wall restaurant in town and traveling with her husband.
