Featured Organization: Bowling Green State University

Currently in the quiet phase of a $200 million comprehensive campaign, Bowling Green State University Advancement is dedicated to fostering alumni success, championing a culture of philanthropy throughout the university, and achieving BGSU’s vision of becoming a premier learning community. BGSU and Advancement Resources have partnered to achieve these breakthroughs in philanthropy throughout the entire organization.

BGSU partnered with Advancement Resources in 2014 for professional coaching services. This service provided development professionals with individualized instruction and feedback by utilizing the development professionals' real-world donor scenarios. In addition to coaching, BGSU has trained individuals at all levels throughout the university, from academic leaders to deans to development professionals. Advancement Resources is honored to work with BGSU as it continues to make breakthroughs in philanthropy.
