We asked members of our Development team, "What do you enjoy most about your job at UNH?"
Here's what they have to say:

After several years at UNH, I made a mid-career transition into front-line fundraising as an institutional giving officer. I’m enjoying working with my development colleagues in new ways and collaborating with faculty members and others across campus to seek private foundation support for UNH’s distinctive research and programs. And of course, one of the great rewards of working at UNH is the opportunity to be enrolled in a degree program while receiving the tuition benefit.

- Laura Chisholm, Director of Institutional Giving

Years at UNH: 7

Over the past several years we’ve completely shifted our thinking on annual giving, and we’ve become more sophisticated in the “why, how, when” of communicating with our constituents. We’ve placed annual giving officers on the front lines, engaged the entire campus in fundraising, and made significant impacts on every part of the university through our annual (603) Challenge event. It has been the highlight of my career to lead such a talented group of annual giving professionals and there is STILL much more to do as we take our program to higher levels than ever in this campaign.

- Jackie Overton, Director of Annual Giving

Years at UNH: 7

I enjoy the work that I do because of the impact we create as fundraisers and donors on our UNH student-athletes. I work with an incredible group of volunteer former student-athletes that have helped raise our participation rate among former athletes to 30%. Our alumni are so loyal, and it's rewarding to be able to tap their generosity to create opportunities for our student-athletes.

- Danny Buzzell '12, Annual Giving Officer

Years at UNH: 5

UNH has given me a renewed passion and energy for my professional role. With more than 4,000 people employed in a vast range of jobs, UNH feels more like a community than just a workplace. We offer a generous benefits package, opportunities for personal and professional development, an employee-friendly environment, and the satisfaction of being involved in a progressive and diverse organization.

- Kristin Porter '06, Administrative Assistant to AVP and Gift Planning

Years at UNH: 5

I enjoy the opportunity to work with my colleagues across all units as they navigate the complexities and sensitivities of estate planning and giving. A planned gift is the ultimate tribute from alumni and friends, and I am always touched by the passion people feel for UNH. I am so fortunate to be among a team of individuals so dedicated to their profession and willing to work as a team to achieve the greatest benefit possible for UNH students.

- Nadja Corcoran, Associate Director of Gift Planning

Years at UNH: 2

After having worked in the Student Philanthropy Center during my undergraduate years at UNH, the transition into a FT Major Gift Officer has been extremely smooth and rewarding. The incredible training, passionate alumni, and supportive teammates truly make UNH the best place to work!

- Tia Delampan '20, Associate Director of Development
