Susannah Conner

Director of Program Development

Susannah Conner received her B.A. in English Literature from UNC, Chapel Hill and her Master of Divinity from Duke Divinity School. She is based in Pocatello, Idaho.

She is concerned with the convergence of storytelling and spirituality in all of her work. She has helped Executive Directors and entrepreneurs communicate with clients, funders, and colleagues by taking a good story and telling it better. Projects have included the development of racial equity curriculum, primers on cooperative economics, and newsletters.

Susannah specializes in fundraising for nonprofit, cooperative, and faith-based organizations. She has helped organizations build sustainable grants programs, expand fundraising and marketing, and shape new projects – all while telling compelling stories.

She has released five studio albums as part of various musical groups, the most recent being a collection of songs written by women in prison over the course of two songwriting workshops she taught at the North Carolina Correctional Institute for Women.
