Carly Kennedy

Development Director, International Quilt Study Center & Museum

Carly manages all fundraising programs at the International Quilt Study Center & Museum, including individual giving, corporate sponsorship, grants, and major gifts. While she began her career as a public school educator, teaching English and history, her professional path transitioned to program development and grant writing. However, she remained a history hobbiest and fan of the written word, and at IQSCM these worlds merge where she implements an annual plan and long-term strategy to fund the exhibition and preservation of America’s and the world’s historical, cultural, and artistic voice found in quilts and quiltmaking traditions.
