UNMF Welcomes New Texas Regional Development Director

Weiss-JoeJoseph (Joe) Weiss joined the UNM Foundation as its first Texas regional director of development in early November. Joe comes to us from American General Media in Albuquerque, where he was director of sales for six radio stations. Before that, Joe worked for UNM Athletics and Lobo Sports Properties for 17 years. He earned his MBA from UNM’s Anderson School of Management, and his bachelor’s degree is from Binghamton University in New York. Joe is a competitive triathlete and runner in his free time, and he lives with his wife, Roxanne Turley, and their 4-year-old son, Levi. You may reach Joe at Joe.Weiss@unmfund.org or (505) 249-6977.

The UNMF would like to thank the following for volunteering at Roadrunner Food Bank (RRFB) on Nov. 12: Patty Bauchman, Elizabeth Cochran, Suzanne Eubank, Betty Olivas, Jacki Gerard, Shelley Helsel, Ann-Mary MacLeod, Catherine Malin, Emilia Rivera and Jared Stone.

“Our team committed two hours at Roadrunner Food Bank sorting a variety of produce in various stages, including nopales (cactus!),” said Suzanne Eubank, who coordinated this event as chair of the UNMF Community Outreach Committee. “Roadrunner Food Bank doesn’t waste a thing; produce that was not appropriate for people in need was donated to local pig farmers!”

RRFB has been serving New Mexico’s hungry since 1980. As the largest food bank in the state, RRFB distributes more than 26 million pounds of food every year to a network of hundreds of partner agencies and four regional food banks. For more information, please visit RRFB’s website.

UNMF Annual Reports of Giving Available to Development Officers, Field Staff—plus online!

The UNM Foundation’s 2014-2015 Annual Report of Giving was mailed to donors on November 4, as well as distributed to the UNMF Board of Trustees, the UNMF staff at our Central Office at Two Woodward Center, and Development Staff at the November Development Officer’s meeting. If you work on campus or beyond and would like a copy, please pick one up in the lobby of Suite 108 next time you’re at the Central Office—or, contact any member of the Marketing and Communications Department if the copies in the lobby have temporarily been depleted. If you’re outside of Albuquerque and would like us to mail you a copy, please contact one of the Marcom staff members listed below.

Development Officers (DOs) for UNM’s schools, colleges and programs may pick up as many as 25 for use in their fund-raising efforts with major donors and potential donors. We can have them ready for you at the reception desk of Suite 108 if you contact one of the following staff members in advance of your visit: Todd Staats (Todd.Staats@unmfund.org; 277-0618), Mario Lara (Mario.Lara@unmfund.org; 277-2969) or Jennifer Kemp (Jennifer.Kemp@unmfund.org; 277-0600).

Please note that we will have these available to staff until we run out.

In addition to creating a flipbook of the Report of Giving on our website for donors, we’ve parked a PDF version of it on the Common Drive for those of you at the Central Office who may need to extract certain pages for specific uses: Common/Marketing Resources/UNMF Report of Giving/FY14-15 ROG.pdf

Five Ways for DOs to Use the ROG

1. Share with your dean, director or chair.
2. Provide a copy to potential donors or leave with donors during visits.
3. Keep one with you for quick reference.
4. Take a few when you travel to visit donors out of state.
5. If you conduct donor meetings in your office, maintain a couple copies there.
