Amina Anderson

Senior Director, Prince George's County, Greater Washington Community Foundation

Amina Anderson joined The Community Foundation in August 2011. Amina leads the Prince George’s County office, working with donors to explore opportunities for achieving their philanthropic goals and facilitating their engagement on critical community issues affecting county residents.

Prior to joining The Community Foundation, Amina worked as President of the Black United Fund of Oregon.

She raised more than $10 million, primarily from small donations, and awarded grants and services to spur social and economic development in low-income communities throughout the state.  Amina was among a group of community residents that helped found Albina Community Bank, a community development bank in Portland, Oregon, with assets now at more than $175 million.
