What We Do

The Institutional Advancement (IA) Office works to support the vision and mission of Geneva College by engaging alumni, parents, friends and community with the college and by raising philanthropic support.

Each area within IA serves a unique purpose, but ultimately the office works as a team to bring glory to God through their work and enhance each person′s experience with Geneva.

The Advancement office works with alumni and friends who are interested in making high-impact gifts to Geneva. They help donors discover what areas within Geneva they are most passionate about and develop personalized giving plans for them.

Alumni Relations / Annual Giving

Alumni Relations works to reunite and connect alumni and friends with the campus and students through special events, visits, social media, newsletters and other communications. Annual Giving administers Geneva′s Annual Fund, which raises support through direct mail, the Phonathon (student caller program), online giving and face-to-face visits. Gifts to the Geneva Fund impact virtually every area of life at college and help cover costs that tuition alone cannot support.
