Geri Wright’s nonprofit fundraising career has spanned more than 25 years and has included stints at the Heard Museum and Arizona Theatre Company. After a mutual friend introduced Wright to the founders of Act One, a nonprofit organization that provides arts experiences to lower-income school children in Maricopa and Pima counties, she came on board in 2015. Now Act One's CEO and president, Wright is passionate about the organization's mission and shares why arts education for children is vital.
