Sandy Springs-based Community Assistance Center recently announced Amy Frizzell, MPA as its new Development Director.

According to a CAC statement, “with more than 24 years in nonprofit development, Frizzell has extensive experience in purpose-driven philanthropy, combining proficiency in fundraising and relationship-building with impactful and authentic nonprofit leadership.”

Frizzell’s experience in fundraising includes Atlanta-area nonprofits like The Salvation Army, Youth Villages, and Usher’s New Look.

In a get-to-know her Q&A, Frizzell noted her background in nonprofits began in her hometown of Miami while studying at Florida International University before moving to Atlanta, “Through working there, I fell in love with nonprofit work. Seeing lives being changed and the impact of the work I get to be a part of is unmatched. The impact might seem small, but it is so big to that person’s life, and it can change things long-term for them. That ability to touch the lives of others is what started me in the nonprofit field, and what has kept me here for over two decades.”
