Laura Ingalls Fuqua

Communications & Content Marketer


Laura loves helping nonprofits tell their stories in ways that create healthier, more stable funding for their missions.

Laura has worked as a professional communicator for 20+ years, leading high-performing nonprofit and corporate marketing teams. She helps organizations focus their messaging, increase brand awareness and produce positive social change.

For years, Laura served on the board of Little Lights Urban Ministries. She also worked as a communications trainer for young journalists in Iraq and for civil society groups in Nigeria.
