Monday, March 11, 2013

PHILADEPLHIA (March 11, 2013) – Terry Travis has been named associate vice president of development at Saint Joseph’s University.

In this role, Travis will manage the central administrative and service functions within the University’s division of Development and Alumni Relations. Her areas of direct oversight include alumni relations, alumni and development communications and donor relations, development services, and the Saint Joseph’s Fund. Travis is a member of the division’s senior management team and responsible for the division’s operating budget.

“Terry is a tremendous addition to our staff,” says Development and Alumni Relations Vice President Marty Farrell ’88, MS ’98. “Her leadership skills, strategic mindset and successful track record as a fundraiser will serve her well on Hawk Hill.”

Previously, Travis spent 11 years as the assistant vice president of development at La Salle University. In that position, she managed all university fundraising programs, including annual giving, major gifts, planned giving, athletics, special events, corporate and foundation giving, grants, sponsored research, and capital fundraising campaigns.

During her La Salle tenure, the University raised in excess of $111M in cash (not including pledges) and the average annual cash gifts to the University rose from $6.5M to $11.8M. La Salle’s 2001–2007 Shoulder to Shoulder campaign—the first in its 150-year history—raised more than $84M in gifts and pledges.

Travis has previous fundraising experience with Villanova University, where she was the senior director of development, and Allegheny University of the Health Sciences, where she was director of major gifts. Prior to a career in fundraising, Travis worked in the financial services industry.

Travis has earned two degrees from La Salle, a bachelor’s in finance and a master’s degree in education.
