Associate Director, Annual Giving

John Bannigan '85

32 Finn Street


I have been a member of the St. Thomas Development team since 1998. I love working for St. Thomas because it is such a respected institution in this community. It is also amazing to witness firsthand the power of the Tommie alumni network. I graduated from the College of St. Thomas in 1985 with degrees in political science and journalism.

I work within the Annual Giving office and am responsible for Tommie Give Day, the Phone Center, and the faculty and staff campaign. I am happy to answer any Annual Giving questions.

Prior to working in the University of St. Thomas Development Office, I was a member of the St. Thomas Admissions team and the Cretin-Derham Hall Development Office.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling, reading, golf, baseball and spending time with my family. My wife, Linda, is a 1986 graduate of St. Thomas. We have three children: Sheila, Sean ’19 and Claire ’22.
