Philanthropy Matters – April Padgett

April Padgett began her career in development five years ago. She came to Our Town in the summer of 2018. April is director of individual and corporate giving for Vibrant Health, a network of safety net health clinics in Wyandotte County, Kansas. She enjoys interacting with donors and colleagues. “One of the best parts of my job is working with donors who are making their first gift – either to our organization or their first philanthropic contribution ever,” April said. After hours, she loves spending time with her husband, Nelson Padgett, and their dog, Winston.
