External Relations Update – December 2020

Charney Hall

The art of development is more nuanced than simple fundraising. Development work forges deeper and more meaningful relationships between institutions and donors and helps to connect an institution’s priorities with an individual’s (or organization’s) philanthropic passions to produce mutually gratifying outcomes. We recently welcomed to our team a new Director of Development, Ash Farrington, whose past experience includes four years serving in SCU’s Development office. Ash’s combination of professional experience and personal commitment to SCU’s Jesuit values make her the perfect person to lead this vital effort. I am pleased to share this message from Ash below. -—Steve O’Brien, Senior Assistant Dean for External Relations
