Francine Cronin, Associate Vice President for Annual Giving at Emory University
Email AddressFrancine Cronin brings 18 years of experience working in the world of higher education fundraising to her role as associate vice president for annual giving at Emory University. She is active on the Development and University Relations Leadership Team and the university’s Administrative Council. In the three years that Francine has been at Emory, the Annual Fund has almost doubled from $3.6 million in fiscal year 2002-03 to $7 million in fiscal year 2005-06. During this same time period alumni participation has grown from 25 percent to 36 percent. Francine’s desire to work in the development and alumni relations field was sparked during her senior year of college, at the State University of New York at Geneseo, where she served as a committee member of the college’s first-ever Senior Gift Campaign (Class of 1987). Upon graduation, she began her career at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), first as assistant director of the Telefund Program and then as director of the annual fund. While working full-time she attended night classes part-time at RIT and in 1993, she earned her M.S. in career & human resource development with a concentration in organizational development. Francine played an active role in RIT’s $100 million five-year capital campaign, “Access to the Future”. After spending six plus years in a large private university setting, Francine moved back to her hometown of Utica, N.Y., and worked at a small public university—SUNY Institute of Technology at Utica/Rome (SUNYIT). She served as director of development & alumni relations at SUNYIT for more than eight years until she moved to Atlanta in June of 2003 to lead Emory University’s Annual Giving Program. Francine is currently serving as vice chair & chair of the Membership Committee for the National Annual Giving Director’s Consortium (NAGDC).
