CHARLOTTE — Amy Tribble returns to The Mint as the new Director of Corporate Relations and Advancement Operations.
Tribble began her career at the Mint Museum in the mid-1980s as a guide and tour coordinator. She has built a career in development and fundraising, most recently serving as Director of Development for the Council for the Rights of the Child since 2015, a role she also held from 2002 to 2011.
“We are very excited to have Amy Tribble join the Mint Museum, especially as we emerge from COVID and recommit to goals of accessibility, inclusion and service to our community,” said Todd Herman, president and CEO of the Mint Museum. “With her long and distinguished career as a non-profit fundraiser, she is perfectly suited for the role and to represent the passion and mission of the museum.”
As Director of Corporate Relations and Advancement Operations, Tribble will work closely with Director of Advancement Hillary Cooper to champion the Mint Museum’s philanthropic efforts. She will coordinate fundraising strategy and development activities to grow the organization’s support base. Tribble will also be instrumental in communicating and coordinating with other departments to create new funding opportunities to meet the immediate needs and long-term goals of The Currency Museum.
“Although the museum has experienced incredible growth since I left in 1988, it has not wavered in its commitment to serving a wide audience through collections, exhibitions and programs. For me, museums are places of learning, places to ask questions, and a way to understand history, freedom, and ourselves,” Tribble said. “It is an honor to return to the Mint Museum, and I look forward to contributing to our community in this role.”
Tribble has always had a passion for the arts. Prior to returning to the Council for the Rights of the Child in 2015, Tribble served as Director of Development for the Men’s Shelter of Charlotte and Vice President of Resource Development for the Arts and Sciences Council. She has also served as an adjunct teacher in the art departments of Queens University, UNC Charlotte, and Central Piedmont Community College.
