OUR STAFF

Stacy Segal

Executive Director

Stacy oversees operations of the Seattle Architecture Foundation (SAF) which includes working alongside hundreds of dedicated volunteers to deliver relevant educational programming to the general public. Stacy directly supports our Tour Program and Design in Depth lecture series. In addition, Stacy leads fundraising, communications and marketing efforts for the organization.

Stacy has more than 15 years of experience in the non-profit sector, including working at the YMCA of Greater Seattle where she led a major $5.2 million capital campaign and four years of annual campaigns. Prior to moving to Seattle, she lived in Chicago taking on all aspects of development and outreach for various social service organizations.

While in Chicago, Stacy developed an interest in architecture and design, living among skyscrapers and buildings designed by the likes of Wright & Sullivan. This interest was sparked by her husband, who is an architect, and has led to her traveling to a variety of landmark buildings throughout the U.S. and Europe.

Stacy’s background reflects SAF’s target population, the general public, which helps ensure that SAF’s programs are accessible to this audience – a primary goal of the organization.
