University Fundraising...What to ask "the man"???

  • Dec 1, 2009
  • by

So I'm taking a Fundraising for Non-profits class, which is a master's level course, so it's a case-based course.  One of the cases was on Bob Groves, Director of University Advancement for MSU but who used to work at the University of Michigan.  I was intrigued at how he raised over $3.1 billion for the university,  and how he was able to lead what is said be most successful fundraising campaign in public university history.  So, I said I have to pick his brain, since this is one aspect of what I provide for my cleints.  Well, tomorrow's the day that I will meet him...2 p.m. in East Lansing.  Now, the question is what do I ask?

I'm thinking I'll start off by asking him how he got into the field, and how he began the process to raise such large funds.  Then ask what qualities a good fundraiser should have, what he see's as new ways of getting donors, advice to newbies, the most rewarding parts of the job.  I'll probably close with what's been the most interestingexperience he's been through.

Do you have any suggestions?

Here's a couple articles about him...



I should have a full review of his fundraising process after I speak to him tomorrow...
