Nick Foster to Lead Fundraising at Culverhouse

The Culverhouse College of Business is pleased to announce that Nick Foster will lead strategic fundraising activities as executive director of development.

Foster is already familiar with Culverhouse and UA’s mission and fundraising needs. He is a cross-campus hire from the University’s Division of Advancement, where he was executive director of colleges and schools. In that role, he was responsible for establishing best practices, strategic direction, vision, and leadership for fundraising and constituent engagement for six of UA’s eleven colleges and schools.

Foster’s arrival comes at an especially important juncture. The University of Alabama is in the middle of the $1.5B Rising Tide capital campaign, with $1.1B raised to date. Culverhouse itself is tasked with raising $200M and has already booked $124M from over 5,100 donors.

He has over ten years of experience working with individual, corporate, and foundation donors and is adept at building teams by developing people, processes, and systems to drive efficiencies and results.

Before his time at UA, he held fundraising positions at The University of Virginia, The University of Southern Mississippi, and The Learning Tree.

STEM/CREATE Path to the MBA program students were recently in Cambodia to, in the words of instructor Harold Wright, “to learn more about emerging trends in global supply chain management.”

Among other interactions, the students also made connections with a group whose mission is to incubator women-led businesses in the country.
