Dana Fleming, Executive Director

Dana Fleming earned a degree in Art History from Birmingham-Southern College in her home state of Alabama.  She has since been involved with non-profit organizations in Alabama, Nevada, and Arkansas. The variety of services she helped provide through those organizations included: access to art education, facilitation of the creation and exhibition of public art, employment opportunities for youth, and domestic violence support services.  In addition, Dana has been part of the educational community as an art teacher.

After relocating to Oregon with her family in 2012, Fleming served as the head of fundraising for Adams Elementary’s Parent Teacher Organization and was co-coordinator of PAR, Roosevelt Middle School’s parent organization. She is currently an active member of South Eugene High School’s Parent Council and is a member of the local chapter of Stand for Children’s Strategy Team. She also serves the community through her board positions on the Lane County Cultural Coalition and ArtCity Eugene.

Fleming is very excited to bring to EEF her breadth of experience, her commitment to community engagement, and her strong desire to make educational access and opportunities widely available to all students.
