Sarasota Herald-Tribune

An official from Mount Holyoke College, a liberal arts college in western Massachusetts, has joined the New College Foundation as vice president for advancement and executive director.
MaryAnne Young will work alongside Jessica Rogers, who will serve as associate vice president for advancement and associate director of the Foundation.
At Mount Holyoke, Young has worked with three presidents, seven board chairs and managed a staff of 38. She has planned and implemented two fundraising campaigns — the most recent, in 2013, exceeded its goal by raising $305 million.
Young, a 1981 alumna of Mount Holyoke, began her career there as a program officer for the alumnae association. She moved to the college’s Office of Development as an annual giving officer and later to director of annual giving and director of development.
She begins work at New College on July 20.
“I am very excited to join New College and President O’Shea’s team,” Young said in a statement on Wednesday. “I believe providing excellent, affordable education is essential in solving the issues facing our world.
“I was impressed by the exceptional faculty, enthusiastic students and devoted staff I met,” she said.
Rogers, who has worked at New College since summer 2006, will continue to oversee all aspects of alumni relations, events, annual giving and stewardship, “while adding a crucial element of major gifts fundraising to her activities,” the school said.
She has overseen campaign planning, served as a strategic adviser on development on projects and managed the association’s engagement program.
