How Oberlin Works

Ask me how.

Principal Giving

The Principal Giving staff maintains relationships with prospective donors with the capacity to give gifts of $2.5 million or more. The staff works with the vice president for development and alumni affairs, the president, senior staff, the Board of Trustees, gift officers, and others to develop and execute strategies for obtaining donations during a capital campaign. Principal giving is supported by the gift planning office and works closely with the leadership giving staff.
