Prospect Development & Donor Relations

Prospect Development collaboratively crafts and implements a robust program for gathering, analyzing, and reporting data designed to inform and strengthen fundraising activity. Working closely with Advancement leadership, development officers, and volunteers, the Prospect Development staff assist colleagues in portfolio development, prospect tracking and performance management, and actively contributes to the process of developing cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship strategies.

The Donor Relations office employs a comprehensive effort to ensure that donors experience high-quality interactions with the College that foster long-term engagement and investment. This often includes providing gift acknowledgement, developing opportunities for donor recognition, and annual reporting of fund performance and impact.
