In March, College Possible Oregon welcomed Emma Hoyle (she/her), our first Individual Giving and Major Gifts Officer. Emma joins the external relations team with more than 15 years of nonprofit experience, fundraising for arts education, children’s advocacy and housing and homelessness. She most recently served as Development Director for Path Home.
“I’m excited to join the College Possible Oregon team as the first Individual Giving and Major Gifts Officer, building on an already strong development program,” said Emma. “I take a community-centered approach to fundraising, keeping equity and transparency at the center. I’m eager to apply these values to my work at College Possible and engage the community in support of student college success!”
Emma is excited to join the College Possible team and expand donor relations in an effort to make transformational impact in the lives of Oregon students.
