Senior Director of Advancement Services and Information Systems, Pomona College
Nadine Francis is the Senior Director of Advancement Services and Information Systems at Pomona College. A graduate of Scripps College with a BA in Studio Art and the University of Redlands where she received an MBA with an emphasis on information systems, Nadine has worked in non-profits and education for nearly twenty years. She’s been a jack of all trades: major gift fundraiser, associate vice president responsible for capital campaign fundraising, advancement services guru, leader of alumni and parent programming, programmer and report writer, and resident donor relations expert. Although Nadine’s true passion lies in all things tech, she always says, “There’s no better way to understand systems than to spend a day in a fundraiser’s shoes.” A Montana native, Nadine lived in Zimbabwe for four years in the early 90s and has been a Southern California transplant ever since. In her free time, you can find her with her nose in a book, heading out to the yoga studio, or preparing material for her weekly radio show at KSPC 88.7 FM or kspc.org.
