Patrick Roche

Patrick is primarily responsible for continuing to grow Claremont McKenna’s development organization with a donor-centric approach that has yielded tremendous success. Previously, as the assistant vice president and director of annual giving, he led both major gift and annual giving teams at the college. Notably, CMC’s renaissance in annual giving is headlined by the success attained in creating recurring gifts – nearly 1 of 3 CMC alumni are now on such a program. Patrick previously served as assistant director and then associate director of annual giving, and as a major gift officer at the California Institute of Technology. He brings more than a decade of prior corporate experience, with a focus on management, strategy, sales, and marketing.
