Elizabeth Allen
Managing Director, TPT Partnerships
Twin Cities PBS (TPT)
St. Paul

The mission of TPT is to "Enrich lives and strengthen our community through the power of media."  TPT’s award-winning team specializes in producing narrative documentaries, digital video shorts and multi- or monolingual videos for broadcast in the areas of health, environment, culture, education, and equity.  The Partnerships team at Twin Cities PBS is focused on collaborating with non-profits across Minnesota to spotlight their missions and the key issues facing our community members. 

Elizabeth has over a decade of experience working with government, education, and nonprofit partners.  She is passionate about connecting the values of the partner to TPT’s exceptional work to educate and improve our community initiatives.  Before TPT, Elizabeth held leadership roles at Socrata where she worked government entities to build best-in-class transparency initiatives to enrich the lives of their citizens; and at Reeher where she was committed to help colleges and universities find more high-value donors and access to the tools and information they need to measure their performance.   Outside her professional roles, Elizabeth is an avid volunteer including chairing of several large fundraising events and serving as a member of her local school district's Communication Committee.  Elizabeth holds a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism from the University of Minnesota and an Executive MBA from the University of St. Thomas.

According to Elizabeth, “I am passionate about connecting the values of nonprofits and their supporters to educate and improve our communities.  My experience in marketing, fundraising and bringing the most effective business models to nonprofits will contribute to enhancing the success of all our member organizations. I bring a unique perspective to how nonprofits can achieve more with the finite resources available to them. By focusing on how we can have the greatest impact to the community through all we do, we can do more together.  

I build and lead successful revenue-generating teams with a relentless focus on connecting the needs of the customer to a mission to improve the world. I develop remarkable relationships and excel at finding creative solutions to complex problems with extensive experience in government, education and non-profit partners. I am passionate about developing people to reach their highest potential and exceed business goals while being an experienced change leader with an exceptional talent for cross-functional leadership.”
