Guardian Angel is excited to announce a new addition to our administrative team. Brandon Sterling has joined us as Director of Development. Brandon brings a wealth of experience as a consultant providing fund development, communications, and community development and engagement services to nonprofits, public institutions and non-profit intermediaries over the last ten years.

“In addition to being a seasoned professional, Brandon believes strongly that everyone deserves an opportunity to raise their quality of life,” shared Executive Director Jessica Brandon, “and we’re happy to have his help in achieving that goal for all our clients”.

During his time as a consultant, Sterling has worked with many St. Louis organizations including Community Response, Healthy Youth Partnership, City of St. Louis Civil Rights Enforcement Agency, Missouri Jobs with Justice/WE CAN MO!, Normandy School District, Grace Hill Health Centers and The Center for Survivors of Torture and War Trauma. Sterling has also worked with local agencies and communities at the bequest of funding institutions like ARCHS, the Deaconess Foundation, St. Louis 4 Kids and Washington University Medical Center Redevelopment Corporation to leverage their grant awards.
Unique for fund development professionals, Sterling has direct experience at many levels of non-profit work. He has excelled in roles as a frontline worker, manager, technical assistant and administrator throughout his career. He has also served as a board director at a local settlement house.

Brandon has sat on a variety of funding request committees including the United Way’s domestic violence allocations panel, the Regional Health Commission’s inaugural scientific review panel, and as a federal grant reviewer for the Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Brandon Sterling has lived and worked in St. Louis for most of life. He attended Christian Brother College High School before studying political science and history at Fisk University in Nashville.
