Diana Forbus has been working in fundraising for more than a decade, having spent 7 years at the Columbia Festival of the Arts and the last (almost) four at the University of Maryland. Prior to her work in fundraising, she worked in theatre education as the General Manager of the National Players and Assistant Director of Education at Olney Theatre Center. Over her decade in fundraising, Diana has done a little bit of everything, but what she enjoys most of all is making connections with donors and critical areas of support. 

Diana holds an M.F.A. in Arts Administration/Theatre Management from the University of Alabama/Alabama Shakespeare Festival and a dual B.A. in Drama and Communications (with an emphasis in Public Relations) from the University of Hartford.
