Donor Services Staff

The Office of Donor Services strives to create, strengthen and maintain lasting relationships with donors and volunteers. We build a culture of gratitude, trust and credibility within the Carnegie Mellon community, where good stewardship of resources, customer service and education are the foundation.

We act as advocates for donors by developing acknowledgement, recognition and accountability programs and events that are appropriate, meaningful, consistent and sustainable over time.
