Katherine NicholsonAssistant Director of Student and Young Alumni Giving at Santa Clara University

Katherine Nicholson joined the reunion giving team at Santa Clara University in 2011, initially as a field officer working with the Senior Class Gift and 5th Reunion, and more recently working with the SCU student Philanthropy Committee on campus. She has helped grow the Senior Gift Campaign from 34% to 50% participation in her time overseeing the program.

Katherine also works with students to further the culture of philanthropy and increase education on campus. The Philanthropy Committee will be hosting their second annual "Sprinksgiving" event in April this year to give students the opportunity to learn about giving at SCU and a chance to thank our donors. She graduated from SCU in 2010 with a B.A. in Environmental Studies and Business, and loves the connection she has with her alma mater.
