Thomas Daly has been appointed as Senior Development Officer at Medgar Evers College effective May 16, 2011. His responsibilities include securing major and planned gifts that shall help buttress the financial foundation of the College.
“I am gratified by this opportunity to help Medgar Evers College fully realize its mission by strengthening its strategic fiscal partnerships,” said Daly. “It is an honor to be welcomed into the Medgar Evers College family. There is so much here to be proud of and to utilize in securing future support.”
Mr. Daly joins Medgar Evers College from NYU Polytechnic University where he served the various directorial and management capacities for 25 years. Most recently, Mr. Daly served as director of Planned Giving instituting a broad based planned giving program that helped increase the amount of private donations and funding that the institution received with programs averaging between $500,000 and $3 million dollars annually during his tenure. Prior to that position, Mr. Daly served as Polytechnic’s Director of Development. During the late 1980s Mr. Daly also spearheaded many fundraising programs including the Samuel B. Duryea Society which honored planned giving donors. He was also instrumental in the reorganizing of the Scholarship Stewardship program which enabled students to write letters of appreciation to previous donors allowing for long term relationships to be built between the donors and the institution.
“I am certain that Mr. Daly’s previous work experience will translate into success here at the College and move the institution in securing enriching new partnerships in the future,” said Dr. William Pollard, president of Medgar Evers College.
Mr. Daly holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Applied Math/Dramatic Art from the University of California, Berkeley in California and a Master’s of Science in Human Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut.
