Welcome Cathy Carson! The Center's New Grants Development Specialist
Cathy holds a B.A. and M.A. in English from Ohio State and served as a member of The Ohio State University Advancement staff for many years, stewarding University donors and alumni and their gifts across several capital campaigns and seven University administrations. Cathy most recently served as Director of Donor Relations and Stewardship at Otterbein University through their successful Where We Stand Matters $50 million fundraising campaign. She particularly enjoyed crafting stewardship impact reports and helping to develop fundraising proposals for both universities.
Cathy’s volunteer work has included literacy and reading programs, Canine Companions for Independence, and hospital and school visits with her certified therapy dog Maisy.
Cathy is happy to return home to Ohio State and is especially excited to join the Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center family.
