Gloria Goosby

Director of Annual Giving, Georgia Southern University

Gloria Goosby began her career in Annual Giving and Alumni Relations nearly 15 years ago as the Phonathon Coordinator at her alma mater, Georgia Southern University. Today, she serves as the key annual giving strategist for central office funding priorities. She and her team raise current-use funding for scholarships, programs, centers, and special projects across the University community. She’s also developed and executed on several alumni affinity group fundraising and engagement campaigns in close partnership with her colleagues in alumni relations over the years and is fully equipped to share tips and tricks for success. For her, the most exciting thing about higher education fundraising and development is the ability to make a daily, positive impact on the lives of students.
