New College selects two new leaders for fundraising foundation

BRADENTON -- The foundation for New College of Florida has two new leaders, according to the school.

MaryAnne Young has been named vice president for advancement and executive director of the New College Foundation.

Jessica Rogers will serve as associate vice president for advancement and associate director of the foundation.

The New College Foundation raises private funds to help students and the school continue.

In 2010, the foundation launched the New College Promise Campaign, which works to ensures the student-faculty ratio remains low while allowing the school to grow.

Young is now vice president for advancement at Mount Holyoke College, a liberal arts college for women in Massachusetts. She has planned and implemented two fundraising campaigns. The most recent in 2013 exceeded its goal by raising $305 million.

Rogers has worked at New College since July 2006 where she has overseen campaign planning, served as a strategic adviser on project development and managed the alumnae association's engagement program. She will continue to oversee alumni relations, events, annual giving and stewardship,

"I believe providing excellent, affordable education is essential in solving the issues facing our world," Young said in a release.
