The Culverhouse College of Business at The University of Alabama is pleased to announce that Nick Foster will lead strategic fundraising activities as executive director of development.
Foster is already familiar with Culverhouse and UA’s mission and fundraising needs. He is a cross-campus hire from the University’s Division of Advancement, where he was executive director of colleges and schools. In that role, he was responsible for establishing best practices, strategic direction, vision and leadership for fundraising and constituent engagement for six of UA’s eleven colleges and schools.
Foster’s arrival comes at an especially important juncture. The University of Alabama is in the middle of the $1.5 billion Rising Tide capital campaign, with $1.1 billion raised to date. Culverhouse itself is tasked with raising $200 million and has already booked $124 million from over 5,100 donors.
He has over ten years of experience working with individual, corporate and foundation donors and is adept at building teams by developing people, processes and systems to drive efficiencies and results.
Before his time at UA, he held fundraising positions at The University of Virginia, The University of Southern Mississippi, and The Learning Tree.
