Welcome, Scott Bunn!
National Farm to School Network is excited to welcome Scott Bunn to our team as Development Director! With nearly 20 years of working in nonprofit development, Scott brings a wealth of fundraising leadership and experience to the organization.
Prior to joining the National Farm to School Network, Scott spent eight years leading development activities with ASAP (Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project), a North Carolina Supporting Partner of NFSN. While at ASAP, Scott created ASAP’s major donor program and elevated the fundraising culture at the organization. He also contributed significantly to ASAP's communications by overseeing rebranding and making ASAP the go-to resource for local food in Western North Carolina. Prior to ASAP, Scott held development positions at the Asheville Art Museum and Penland School of Crafts.
As Development Director, Scott will lead the organization’s strategic growth and manage the strategy and execution of all development efforts. In addition to growing traditional revenue streams such as individual giving, events, corporate partnerships and grants, Scott will continue building the National Farm to School Network’s earned income strategies and explore other innovative development strategies, like social investment donors, to support our ongoing work.
Scott lives in the Asheville, NC area with his wife Jenny and two children Stella and Levi. He also co-hosts a weekly sports talk radio show for Asheville FM, the community radio station in Asheville.
Reach out to Scott with your development questions, to brainstorm solutions to fundraising challenges, to share your successes or to find out how you can collaborate in raising awareness and money to support the farm to school movement.
