Welcome, Brian Powell, Annual Giving Programs

I am happy to announce Brian Powell has joined the Annual Giving Programs team.  Brian will be our newest member of the Major Gifts team.  He started on September 9th, as Associate Director of Major Gifts.  In this role, Brian will be responsible for relationship-building with alumni, parents, and friends to assess their interest, financial capacity, and willingness to support the University’s mission with unrestricted gifts in the range of $5,000 to $25,000.  Brian will focus on individuals in the newly defined Central Region.

Brian is relocating from Harrisonburg, VA where he worked four years at James Madison University in the Athletics Annual Fund (Duke Club). As the Director of the Duke Club, he was responsible for the solicitation, prospect research, stewardship, volunteers, events, and production of collateral material.  Prior to James Madison, Brian worked for California State University Bakersfield as an Athletic Development Coordinator.  He also served as a Cardinal Athletic Fund Intern for the University of Louisville.

Brian graduated from Georgetown College with a B.A. in Economics and minors in History and Business Administration.  He also has M.S. in Sports Administration from the University of Louisville.
