RALEIGH, N.C. — Marcy Engler, associate director of major gifts at Yale University, has been named executive director of development for the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at N.C. State University, effective May 1.
Engler will work with volunteer, college and university leaders to plan, implement and oversee a long-range development program to support the vision and funding priorities of the college and its leadership.
Engler holds a master’s degree in business administration from the Yale School of Management, and an undergraduate degree in English from Columbia University, where she graduated summa cum laude.
At Yale, where she has worked for 10 years, she most recently staffed a team of 14 volunteers and managed relationships with 250 major gifts prospects in Yale’s current $3.5 billion capital campaign.
During her five years at the Yale Office of Development, she cultivated and solicited six- and seven-figure gifts that resulted in new donations of over $25.5 million.
She also was responsible for advancing one of Yale’s top donor relationships from initial cultivation through a $50 million donation that established the school’s Jackson Institute for Global affairs.
The Philanthropy Journal is a program of the Institute for Nonprofits in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at N.C. State.
