Columbus School for Girls is pleased to announce that Amy Borntrager has joined the CSG community as the new Chief Development Officer. Amy brings more than 11 years of experience in development and more than two decades of experience in the non-profit and public sectors with a proven track record in fundraising, special events, program implementation, and relationship management.

“We are thrilled to welcome Amy to the CSG community,” said Head of School Jennifer Ciccarelli. “Amy’s expertise and depth of fundraising and development experience really stood out to us. She has built lasting relationships with many community leaders and understands the philanthropic environment in central Ohio. Amy also has a demonstrated passion for creating a more equitable community for girls and women, an interest that is central to the CSG mission. I am excited to see how she and her team will advance CSG’s development efforts in a meaningful way for the future of our School and, most important, for the future of our students.”

A native of Columbus, Amy most recently served as the Director of Development for Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio. Before that, she spent six years at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Postal Museum, including four years as the institution’s Director of External Affairs. There, Amy implemented innovative new programs such as an international fundraising campaign that increased the awareness of the Smithsonian museum around the world and raised significant funds. She also led a successful $20M capital campaign to build the world’s largest stamp museum in Washington, DC.

Amy holds an M.P.A. from North Carolina State University and a B.A. from  Ohio University. She is engaged with the Columbus community, dedicating her time and talent to the issues that matter most to her, including the Youth Yoga Project, where she currently serves as a board member.  Amy is married and has two children. 

“This opportunity brings all of my passions together,” Amy said. “I am eager to build on the already strong position that CSG has as a longtime staple of the central Ohio landscape, and I look forward to building a successful development program to further the mission of empowering girls to discover their distinct potential as learners and leaders.”
