Senior Manager, Community Affairs at Capital One
Amy Chapman volunteered sporadically in high school and at Virginia Tech, but her love for community did not truly start until she was placed as a Governor’s Fellow in Virginia’s Executive Mansion. Amy served as Assistant Mansion Director under two governors and was responsible for the docent volunteer program and special events. Amy worked at the Science Museum of Virginia for three years as the Director of Special Events and Director of Corporate Sponsorship, managing volunteers to lead museum events and solicit business engagement.
After a short stint as Manager of Donor Relations at the American Red Cross, Amy worked as a Business Council Program Manager for the Greater Richmond Chamber and led volunteers in business advocacy and outreach efforts.
Amy joined the Capital One Community Affairs team in 2010 starting with a role in corporate volunteerism, as market manager for the Central Virginia region, and now a Community Relations Consultant for the Card business. In partnership with Central VA executives, Amy leads community engagement in Richmond that delivers business returns to Capital One including associate engagement, corporate reputation and community impact. She also works with Card leadership to develop strategies for community engagement nationally that deliver on business goals.
In 2015, Capital One contributed more than $46 million in philanthropic grants and 367,000 volunteer hours. In Central Virginia, Amy’s team lead the investments of more than $2.9 million in grants, 407 nonprofit board leaders, and 6,089 unique volunteers contributing 105,000 volunteer hours.
Amy is currently on the steering committee of the United Way’s THRIVE Collaborative. She has previously served on the Middle School Renaissance 2020 advisory committee, the Valentine’s History Makers steering committee and was a mentor through Chesterfield Communities in Schools and AMP! Metro Richmond.
While she has loved each stage of her career, she is most proud of being the wife of a patient husband and mother to two wonderfully imperfect children.
