Seeking to build on the success of Trine University’s fundraising and external relations
efforts, Trine’s Office of University Advancement has welcomed two new professionals
who will provide data and research support to its staff.
Jordan Marshall has joined Trine University as director of research and stewardship.
In her role, Marshall will implement and supervise a comprehensive prospect research
and donor stewardship program.
Marshall most recently served as director of donor relations at St. Mary’s College,
where her responsibilities included gift acknowledgements and donor recognition programs.
She also served as a stewardship officer at Albion College and a development coordinator
at Vanderbilt University. She holds a Master of Science in administration with a focus
on philanthropy and nonprofit management from Central Michigan University.
Amanda Cole, Trine’s new director of advancement services, will direct all donor data
and research support for the Office of University Advancement. She also will maintain
the university’s matching gift program.
Cole most recently served as associate director of research and technology at Albion
College, where she conducted research, organized data and provided analysis to assist
fundraising efforts. Her prior experience included positions at the College and Career
Access Center and the Jackson Community Foundation, both in Jackson, Michigan.
“Jordan and Amanda both bring valuable experience from fundraising at other institutions
to their work at Trine,” said David J. Fraboni II, vice president for university advancement.
“We look forward to enhancing our already successful work at Trine through their efforts.”
