Director of Development Parent & Family Giving

Chris Fahey

2120 Summit Avenue

I joined the University of St. Thomas in April 2015, and I am honored to have the opportunity to work with alumni and friends who wish to support the mission of St. Thomas through gifts that are realized both today and into the future.

As a member of the Planned Giving team, I have the unique privilege of working with alumni and friends who have included, or are looking to include, St. Thomas in their estate plans. We are happy to welcome these donors into the Williams and Elizabeth Finn Heritage Society as well. If you or your professional advisor wish to explore the benefits of contributing a more complex form of gift to St. Thomas (e.g., closely-held stock, real estate, farmland, etc.), I or another member of the team can assist you.

I am originally from St. Paul, and I was fortunate to have attended high school at St. Thomas Academy. My family and I returned home to Minnesota two years ago after I spent most of my early career working in fundraising roles across the country in support of higher education and public broadcasting. I look forward to bringing all my experience back home, where I can work with your family to support your areas of passion at St. Thomas!
