TUFTS UNIVERSITY, Grafton, Boston, and Medford, Massachusetts
SCHOOL OF VETERINARY MEDICINE
Working with the school’s development staff and the university's office of development communications, I have written annual fund appeals in the form of direct mail pieces, letters, and electronic mail. These appeals have gone to two different audiences: alumni and "friends" (primarily clients of the veterinary school's animal hospitals).
I have also written many veterinary school donor and gift profiles for Tufts Veterinary Medicine magazine and BluePrint, the newsletter for Tufts’ “Beyond Boundaries” campaign.
SCHOOL OF ARTS AND SCIENCES
A nine-page case statement to endow the Gittleman Endowment for Excellence in Teaching in honor of Tufts icon Sol Gittleman, retired Tufts University provost and now the Alice and Nathan Gantcher University Professor.
“Fingers are flying through open books and over the keys of laptops and handhelds. A question stops them short for a moment. Then ideas—and fingers—begin flying again.” This vivid scene opens a case statement for an expanded “learning commons” in Tisch Library.
Annual Fund appeal: four self-mailers targeting different non-donor alumni audience segments across all Tufts schools. Demographic and other factors determined which mailing was sent to which segment, such as this one to former Tufts athletes.
NUTRITION, MEDICAL, AND DENTAL SCHOOLS
Working directly with each school’s development communications staff, I have written annual fund appeals and acknowledgement letters to leadership donors.
