Meet Amanda Baker, Our Interim Executive Director for the Summer

Posted Jul 03, 2019 09:30 AM
Summer is already bringing warmth and sunshine to the Pacific Northwest. For us, it also brings a rare opportunity for our executive director to take a well-deserved sabbatical.

Nancy Long will be away from July 1 – September 30, enjoying some of the season’s greatest joys: travel, family time, and gardening.

Amanda Baker, 501 Commons' interim ED, has this to say to the nonprofit community:

I’m honored to be appointed as interim executive director during this sabbatical period. Beyond my deep commitment to 501 Commons’ mission, I also bring fifteen years of nonprofit leadership experience, including the past seven years here as deputy director. You can learn more about my background from my bio or LinkedIn profile.

Our team and board are working closely together to foster relationships and deliver solutions that help nonprofits be more successful in taking on our community’s toughest issues. If there is anything we can do to support your work, please don’t hesitate to contact me at
