Holly Clifton resides in Richmond, Virginia with her husband, Scott and children, Abby (14) and Tucker (11) and their beloved chocolate lab, Kenny. Holly and Scott made Richmond their home in 2005 after living in the Washington, DC area since graduation from Hollins College in 1999. She is a native of Lexington, Virginia where she grew up as a member of Oxford Presbyterian Church. 

Hope Church is the Clifton family’s church home where Holly serves on the Care Ministry’s Triage Team and spent quite a few years on the Welcome Team for Hope Kids. 

In her professional life, Holly currently serves as a fundraising consultant to the Republican Governors Association, Friends of Mark Obenshain and to the Hahn Group. Under the Hahn Group, she is assisting with the fundraising efforts of the 9/11 Pentagon Memorial Visitor Education Center. 

Prior to working as a consultant, Holly was Director of Membership and Fundraising for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce where she created and managed a fundraising program dedicated specifically to senior Chamber executives and board members focusing on the Chamber’s elite, high dollar donor program composed of over 250 global Chief Executive Offices from among the Fortune 500. 

The greatest gift from her time at U.S. Chamber, however, was meeting Scott. They met while both working at the Chamber in July 1999, and were married in Lexington, VA, on October 25, 2003.
