Reunion Giving Officer, Whitman College
Claire Evans is the Reunion Giving Officer for Whitman College. She recruits, trains and stewards Co-Chairs and Committee volunteers to fundraise for their milestone 10th, 25th, 40th and 50th reunions. During a milestone reunion, classes work together to present a gift to the college that is typically three to five times their normal annual giving. Claire has a background in sales and marketing from leading the Graduate Admissions programs at Kaplan Test Prep in Seattle, WA. She combined those skills with her knack for details and organization to serve as the Event Coordinator for Walla Walla Community Hospice. In 2017, she returned to her alma mater to join the Development office.
