Major Gift Officer

As a Major Gift Officer, Fannie meets with alumni, parents and friends of the college to engage their support for WC. Besides being an alumna herself, she is also a parent of both a current Washington College student and a recent graduate.  

Some specific funds and programs you can talk to Fannie about:

  • The Hodson Boathouse. This will be a state-of-the-art facility for WC’s topflight rowing and sailing programs as well as for club and recreational water sports. It will offer team meeting rooms, shop and storage space, and a large lounge. The facility will accommodate student and alumni gatherings, regattas, and private events.
  • The Elm Tree Fund. An endowed fund that helps students with exceptional financial needs that cannot be met in conventional ways.
  • The Locker Room Sponsorship Program. An athletic sponsorship that names a locker or locker room after the donor and directs 100% of the funds to the sport of the donor’s choice.
