Crystal Brown, Director of Institutional Giving, Literacy Partners
As a teenager, Crystal grew up watching her uncle lead her small Mississippi Delta town as mayor, resulting in a strong desire to continue the family legacy as a public servant. With more than 15 years of experience in non-profit and higher education, she comes to Literacy Partners with a broad background in fund development. During her tenure with the American Red Cross she managed a six-figure portfolio and helped to reinstate the local region’s annual donor recognition program. She is a two time graduate of Jackson State University with a Bachelor of Science in Mass Communication and a Master of Public Policy and Administration. When she is not working, she enjoys volunteering through her sorority, cheering on her Jackson State Tigers and exploring new adventures with her daughter and husband. Crystal resides in Brandon, Mississippi.
