Anne Vance

Annual Giving Manager



Anne connects park users and supporters with her favorite Houston park through annual fundraising campaigns and engagement activities. She presents those who care deeply about Memorial Park with opportunities to keep it a flourishing regional greenspace through partnership with the Conservancy. Prior to joining the staff at MPC in 2014, Anne was a historic preservation consultant and had spent more than a decade with the state historic preservation office in Austin, where she helped communities and organizations develop strategic plans and fundraising strategies for their cultural landscapes and resources. Anne graduated from the University of Kansas in Lawrence with a BA in Anthropology and Film Studies. She is a volunteer at heart, serving on the boards of College Memorial Park Cemetery and Texas Archive of the Moving Image. When not in the office, she’s most likely found on the south side trails.
