The Development Office assists with the coordination of all campus fundraising efforts (except those involving student organizations). The Development Office organizes, plans, and carries out annual fundraising campaigns for the Annual Fund, the Swamp Fox Club and special projects. The Development Office identifies prospects and works with donors who wish to make restricted and unrestricted gifts to the University. The office prepares proposals to solicit major gifts from individuals, foundations, businesses, industry, and other community/civic organizations.
All gifts of cash are received in the Development Office which is also responsible for receipting funds appropriately and acknowledging and reporting gifts. Non-Cash Gifts (click here for the detailed policy and procedure ) are also recorded in the Development Office. A Non-Cash Gifts Form is used for reporting such gifts. This form may be obtained in the Development Office. The office maintains records of donor activities and plans special events to cultivate and recognize donor generosity.
Any academic or administrative department or division which plans to solicit funds from the private sector should coordinate such activities through the Development Office.
