Mike Faust


Mike returned to VGA after the conclusion of a highly successful campaign which he led for his alma mater. He was with VGA from 2015-2018 following retirement from managing a corporate foundation, as well as editing and speechwriting at a Fortune 500 firm. In his part-time role at VGA, he assists our project managers in writing program scripts for events and videos, developing charitable solicitations and writing/editing print materials. Through the years, he has worked with numerous charities and served on many nonprofit boards. His writing talents and broad knowledge of Omaha’s corporate and nonprofit landscape is a great resource to VGA team members and their clients.

Mike earned a B.S. Business Administration degree from Northwest Missouri State University.
