Office of Donor Relations

The NKU Office of Donor Relations includes Special Events and Commencement, Donor Relations and Stewardship, and Development Communications.

We produce and coordinate a variety of events on and off campus that recognize, thank, congratulate and celebrate special people and moments in the life of NKU with commencement being the largest event. We work closely with the Office of Development and the President’s Office to coordinate activities that engage, thank and recognize our donors.

With the assistance of Development Communications we are able to tell the many NKU stories that enable us to connect with and inform the community and our various constituents.

The Office of Donor Relations helps support and cultivate enduring relationships with NKU faculty, staff, students, alumni, the Northern Kentucky community and our donors.

Our staff is composed of three full-time employees:

Other types of events that our office helps coordinate include building groundbreakings, dedications and donor gift recognition events. We also partner with community organizations to produce public interest events such as political debates and forums.
