Senior Manager, Events
Tiffanie Williams joined Music Will as Senior Manager, Events in November 2023. For over seventeen years, Tiffanie has served as an events and fundraising professional for nonprofits primarily planning and executing large and small fundraising events. Oftentimes a donor’s first engagement and introduction to an organization involves attending an event or program. She is committed to designing fun, captivating, and interactive events, not only to raise dollars for Music Will’s programs, but also to increase the organization’s visibility and impact. Tiffanie grew up dancing and attended a performing arts public high school. Her appreciation for the role of arts and music in schools is the driving force behind her strong connection to Music Will’s mission.
Prior to joining Music Will, Tiffanie served as Director of Corporate Giving and Events at Landmarks Illinois (LI) in Chicago, producing their signature fundraising events, along with leading LI’s corporate giving and annual corporate sponsorship program. She also served as staff liaison for LI’s young professionals committee, Skyline Council. Throughout her career she has actively partnered with board members and volunteers on fundraising efforts, leveraging their skills, expertise, and networks to advance the organization’s mission.
Tiffanie studied at Mercyhurst College in Erie, PA. She is seeking a certification in fundraising management from IUPUI’s Lilly School of Philanthropy. She currently lives in Chicago, IL with her husband and enjoys dancing, running, long walks along Lake Michigan in the city, reading, and watching her favorite hometown NFL football team, the Steelers. She does not have any musical talents, but give her a song and an eight count, and she’ll choreograph a dance.
Music Will always compel me to hit the dance floor, even if it’s just in my kitchen.
