Stewardship and Donor Relations

Stewardship and Donor Relations

Hans oversees the Stewardship and Donor Relations team, which supports efforts to acknowledge, retain, and grow donor support through events, communications, and personal interactions. She sets the goals, strategies, and objectives to support the Office of the President, six academic schools, centers of excellence, and functional units through stewardship initiatives and programs designed to acknowledge, retain, and grow donor support.

The Stewardship and Donor Relations team collaborates with colleagues within University Advancement and across campus to provide stewardship for members of the four recognition societies – the Legacy Society (donors who have the university in their estate plans), Vision Society (donors whose cumulative giving exceeds $100,000), President’s Society (donors who give $1,000+ annually), and Monmouth Loyal (consecutive donors for two or more years) – while overseeing impact reporting of gifts to support all areas of Monmouth University, scholarships, programs, athletics, and capital projects.  Her team oversees the University’s scholarship program, recognition societies, marquee events, and donor recognition ceremonies.
