PSA Faculty Assistance

Fund and Friend Raising: A Primer for Faculty and Staff

The Public Service Activities (PSA) Office for Development is prepared to assist and advise you with fund and friend raising. Our mission is to support Public Service Activities' efforts to increase private gifts for individual, departmental, and unit-wide programmatic and non-programmatic objectives and to provide opportunities for our constituents to be involved with Clemson public service.

The Public Service Activities Office for Development

  • Identifies, cultivates, solicits, and stewards all gifts donated to the Clemson University Foundation designated for the College.
  • Coordinates proposals and gifts to individuals, corporations, and foundations.
  • Provides support for development related activities, including mail correspondence, stewardship event planning, and communication materials.

When you have an interest in submitting proposals for individual, corporate and foundation gifts, you must first receive approval from your department/director. Next, contact Kim Arp, Assistant Director of Director of Development for College of Agriculture, Forestry, and Life Sciences and Public Service Activities, to work with you to coordinate the efforts.

We look forward to partnering together to enhance the development and alumni relations areas of the Public Service Activities. You may contact us at any time for assistance and support of fund and friend raising for our department.
