Director of Development
Development means friend raising, fundraising and community outreach to support the Foundation's goals. At SMC, development includes working with alumni and community members to secure major gifts, strengthen and engage alumni, and coordinate special events.
Southwestern Michigan College’s approach to fundraising is donor-centered through the SMC Foundation. Development staff and the Foundation Board work collaboratively across the community to build relationships with donors and advance SMC’s mission.
