Leigh Wood

KUAF Membership Director

With 10 years of experience in non-profit fundraising, Leigh has raised money for organizations ranging from small artists' collectives like Art Amiss to the international hunger relief group Heifer International. She worked as KUAF's Membership Director from 2006 to 2008. She then moved to Austin, Texas, where she worked for KUT 90.5, Austin's public radio station, working in the Membership Department and coordinating the station's special events. From there, she moved to Little Rock, where she ran an artists' collective and eventually ended up at Heifer International, overseeing the organization's monthly giving program. She was thrilled, however, to return to Fayetteville in 2013 and to her position at KUAF.

Leigh grew up in Fayetteville, went to Fayetteville High School and earned both a bachelor's and Master's degree in English literature from the University of Arkansas. She believes Northwest Arkansas is truly a magical place to live and work. When she's not raising funds from individual listeners and families, she's recruiting and training volunteers, coordinating special events, writing grant proposals and acting as the contact person for all of KUAF's 3,500 members.

Her favorite pastimes are reading, cooking and playing with her son and daughter. She also co-founded and tells stories in the Fayetteville-based storytelling group, That's What She Said. She hosts and she produces the weekly show, The KUAF Vinyl Hour, and hosts a monthly Bring Your Own Vinyl night at Stage Eighteen in Fayetteville.
