Welcome to the Southwest Team, Betsy Hughes!

It is my pleasure to welcome Betsy Hughes to the Southwest team as a regional director of development. Betsy’s first day will be on January 18, and she will serve benefactors in Arizona.

Betsy has spent her career in fundraising for numerous non-profit organizations throughout the country. Most recently, she served as the Senior Vice President and Chief Development Officer for United Way of Metro Chicago, where she secured the organization’s first 8-figure gift for community development. She also served for 15 years as the Vice President of Institutional Advancement at Illinois Institute of Technology

Betsy graduated from St. Bonaventure University with a degree in Communication. She is from Pennsylvania but has spent the past 30 years in Chicago with her husband, Lyle, and two daughters.

I am thrilled to welcome Betsy to the Notre Dame family and the Southwest team. Please join me in welcoming her to the UR team!
