Saint John’s University has joined the Reeher Platform, the first shared management system dedicated to higher-education fundraising in which features and tools added for one customer benefit all. Located in Collegeville, Minn., this nationally recognized liberal arts university serves nearly 2000 male students and more than 30,000 alumni.
Like many well-established universities, Saint John’s has a comprehensive, mature advancement program with a team of 38 people serving a wide array of responsibilities including major gifts, annual fund, planned giving and alumni relations. The advancement team had tried several times to create their own database software program that could easily generate reports on a daily basis to show fundraising activity. Each time, they were met with challenges and the end result was not satisfactory.
