Advancement Operations

We support student, donors and colleagues by providing comprehensive services to educate on the need for, record, and distribute accurate and confidential information in a timely and ethical manner. As a team we consistently review and refine our systems within communications, donor relations, gift processing, research, and reporting to further the University's mission.

The purpose of Advancement Operations is to:

  • Communicate the impact and value of investing in University of the Pacific
  • Steward and thank Pacific donors
  • Process and receipt all gifts received on behalf of the University
  • Maintain and update biographical information on alumni, parents, friends, and donors
  • Process requests for information based on University needs

In addition, we report on development activity based on CASE and IRS regulations and house permanent hard-copy files on alumni, parents, friends, and donors for reference and history. Advancement Services and Research is located in Bannister Hall, First Floor; Donor Relations and Stewardship, Communications, University Events and Powell Match staff are located in Hand Hall, Second Floor. For help locating Bannister or Hand Halls, see the Stockton Campus Map.
