Afton Benson

Relationship Manager 

Pronouns: She/Her/They/Them

Started with Prepare + Prosper (P+P): I started with Prepare + Prosper in May 2022, I also work with individual artists and small nonprofits to help them reach their goals.

In my role: I am the Relationship Manager! I manage the relationships between our amazing donors and funders, write grants, and assist with developing and making fundraising events happen.

Geeks out over: Juggling, circus, physical theatre, clowning, self-employment, nonprofit board life, spreadsheets. Anything that you like to geek out over! I love learning and hearing about what others are passionate about.

When it’s not tax season: I can be found at the MN Neverthriving Juggling Club, producing Fringe Festival shows or Juggling Festivals, hiking and visiting state parks, biking, or seeing shows.
