Frostburg State University’s Office of University Advancement is welcoming some new faces in 2008.
Monica G. Reginio is FSU’s new Director of Annual Giving, with responsibility for leading the FSU Annual Fund. Reginio has most recently served as an Annual Funds and Special Gifts Officer at Mount Holyoke College, where she was a member of a team that brought that annual fund to its highest total ever of $8.56 million last year. She has significant experience in soliciting leadership annual fund gifts up to $10,000 and has effectively utilized a massive volunteer structure to achieve annual fund success. Reginio has garnered additional experience in development research and special event planning at Smith College.
Todd R. Moffett has been named the Director of Development Information Systems and Technologies. Moffett has worked in the development office at the University of Maryland, Baltimore, for approximately nine years as an Information Systems Engineer. In this role, he assisted the UMB Foundation Inc. and the development offices of six professional schools through database reporting, data loads and special projects. He is adept at developing effective information technology business processes, including procedures for data entry, record maintenance and database security and integrity. Moffett will assume a leadership role in making necessary improvements to the department’s systems.
Cherie A. Krug, who had previously done great work with FSU's Center for Volunteerism and National Service, will be joining University Advancement as Director of Major Gifts. While Krug’s work in the area of volunteerism and service is well known in the local community, her fundraising prowess is perhaps less known. A graduate of the Fund Raising School-Indiana University Center on Philanthropy, she has secured numerous grants during her tenure as well as support from private donors. She knows the FSU alumni base very well, and the "bottom line" approach to her work and her outgoing personality will continue to serve her well as she makes this transition. She will play a critically important role in assisting to secure major philanthropic commitments for the upcoming campaign.
Vice President for University Advancement Bernard J. Davisson II said that these new members of the Advancement team and the expertise they bring represent a significant investment in the future of philanthropy at FSU at a particularly meaningful point in its history.
“This infusion of much-needed resources will allow us to enhance the institution's presence with our donors and active volunteers around the state and around the country,” Davisson says. Advancement and alumni programs staffers will be on the road more in coming months to build better relationships and engage those who care about FSU more meaningfully in its philanthropic endeavors.
“We know that people's lives are incredibly busy and this type of personalized attention is what Frostburg's educational product is known for. We view this approach to alumni and donor relations as a natural progression of an ongoing relationship,” Davisson says.
