Senior Development Director

CCE’s Senior Development Director Lynate Pettengill (she/her/hers) has over 25 years of nonprofit fundraising and development experience, including: major donor relations, grant writing, special events, direct mail, fundraising appeals, foundations, and corporate donors. Since Lynate joined CCE as a staff member in February 2013, annual revenue has increased from $430,000 to over $9,500,000.

Such success relies on the infectious enthusiasm, levity, and sense of unity Lynate brings to her work, to the Development Team (“the D Team”), and to the CCE movement as a whole. She is deeply committed – both personally and professionally – to CCE’s mission and core values of optimism, the power of relationships, integrity, and diversity. Lynate is a Truman State University alum, and a member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP).

A sixth-generation Kansan, Lynate currently resides in Lawrence, KS. She enjoys spending her free time outdoors or playing the ukulele, and with friends, family, and canine sidekick, Winnie.
