Three big cheers for two awesome women
2020 and the New Year have brought two additions to the “small but mighty” team at Historic Germantown.
- Lawanda Horton Sauter joined them to assist with fundraising, events and business development.
- In January, Jenn Tham was brought on as the new Programs & Office Coordinator.
Lawanda Horton Sauter, MS, is the President and CEO of Mission Incorporated. For over 12 years, Mission Incorporated has been providing startup, grant writing, and growth development services to nonprofit organizations.
Ms. Horton has raised over 25 million dollars for organizations throughout PA, DE, NY and NJ. She has provided startup & capacity building support to over 250 organizations.
She has 20 years of experience as a nonprofit executive and holds a Masters in Nonprofit Management and Leadership from New England College. In addition to her nonprofit capacity building work, the community program Mission Forward is used to push arts and activism projects. Recently Ms. Horton raised $10,000 for The Trayvon Martin Foundation and Black Male Development Programs, and distributes over $1,000 worth of household items and food to families along Philadelphia’s Germantown Avenue annually.
Jenn Tham is a recent graduate of Bryn Mawr College and holds a major in History of Art and a minor in Museum Studies. She has been deeply committed to museums almost her entire life, having spent most childhood weekends in New York City’s many museums. She is particularly passionate about promoting cultural accessibility and inclusivity through education and programming, and greatly admires Historic Germantown’s dedication to community engagement.
Congratulations to Lawanda and Jenn!
