Strengthening the Donor Experience at Gonzaga University

Small, Private University
Spokane, Washington
  • Background

    Gonzaga University is a small, private university in Spokane, Washington, with an enrollment of approx. 7,400. Founded in 1887, it is a Jesuit institution that educates students for lives of leadership and service for the common good.

  • Challenge

    Gonzaga’s Advancement team faced a significant but familiar hurdle: despite limited resources, they needed to expand revenue streams and engage more constituents within the institution in their annual giving efforts. But the team’s primary focus on major gifts and donor relations impacted their internal bandwidth and expertise to execute this vision effectively.

  • Solution

    By partnering with EAB, Gonzaga was able to leverage newfound capacity and technology to increase the sophistication of their flagship fundraising campaigns within their annual giving program, with a renewed emphasis on personalized engagement strategies and an omni-channel deployment.
