VP for Development
In 2000, Allen Price became the radio station JoyFM’s morning show host and community relations specialist. In February 2005, Compassion Canada asked him to travel to Nicaragua where God broke his heart for the poor.
Allen then decided to organize his first solo fundraising campaign: to bring one spigot of water to a small Nicaraguan community. He raised $10,000 within six short weeks.
In 2005, Allen began work for World Vision Canada, first as team leader for Atlantic Canada and then for Ontario. Next he joined Canada Baptist Ministries, fundraising for both ministry staff and various projects. In August 2016, Dr. Stephen Lennox asked him to join Kingswood University as the VP for Development.
As VP for Development, Allen is passionate about sharing Kingswood’s mission to everyone he meets. He travels extensively to churches in the Maritimes and beyond. He also has made important connections with businesses and town leaders within the Sussex community.
Campaigns that Allen is currently spearheading:
- The final campaign for the Benson Athletic Complex
- Kingswood’s Phonathon
- Kingswood University Golf Classic
- Giving Tuesday and Christmas Giving
- Monthly Giving program
- Scholarship Giving program
- Legacy Giving program
- New Student Centre/Dining Hall
Allen is husband to Amy, and they are the proud parents of Benjamin and Emily. He enjoys playing piano, bass, and saxophone and has also sung in various quartets. His favourite time at home is “Silly Songs with Daddy,” and he and Amy enjoy golfing together.
Allen will gladly sit down with you, to share Kingswood’s vision and show you various ways you can support what God is doing here.
