Position Summary: 

The Regional Program is responsible for building and maintaining relationships with alumni and friends to raise major gifts for the University of Georgia. The Regional Directors of Development build a culture of philanthropy in regions across the country while strengthening affinity for the University. Through travel to various territories, Regional Directors provide strategic direction and leadership for UGA’s alumni and friends as they make philanthropic and volunteer decisions across the university. 

Regional Directors make strategic engagement with alumni, parents, and friends a top priority by using a blend of in-person constituent meetings, virtual meetings when they are necessary for a donor-centered approach, and collaboration with internal stakeholders to engage individuals and organizations in their local markets. Expectations are for Regional Directors to conduct up to 160 planned, strategic meetings with top prospects each year. Most of those meetings will be in-person based on planned and coordinated outreach. Travel should be coordinated around the availability of top prospects and coordinated with key internal stakeholders.

This team is an extension of the development efforts of all 18 schools and colleges in addition to the various academic units and the Athletic Association. Because of this group’s diverse geographical reach, as well as the representation of the entire university, regional directors exemplify a donor centered approach by maximizing a donor’s philanthropic potential and passion to invest in any area of the University of Georgia.

This Regional Director’s assigned regions include cities and territories across Texas. Though subject to change based on institutional priority, this position may include other regions to be determined as needed.
