Kitty Bartlett named Director of Annual Giving
Saint Michael's College named Kitty Bartlett, annual giving coordinator for the Lund Family Center from 2008 to 2012, as SMC Director of Annual Giving. Ms. Bartlett started at the liberal arts Catholic college on April 2.
A 1995 magna cum laude graduate of Colgate University with a degree in Spanish, Ms. Bartlett has been at the Lund Family Center since 2004, first as Development Director (2004-2008), and then as Annual Giving Coordinator (2008-2012). She was Development Director for Casa Central, a large Hispanic social service agency in Chicago, from 1999-2003.
Ms. Bartlett earned a Certificate in Nonprofit Management 2000-2001 in Chicago, and is a 2005 graduate of the Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce Leadership Champlain program.
"The impact of Saint Michael's College in attracting and cultivating well-rounded intentional people who want to make their community a better place, is something I wanted to be a part of," said Ms. Bartlett about taking this position.
Her immediate goal is "to learn more about what motivates people's giving so that we can better foster that philanthropic instinct and make them feel great about every gift to the college," she said.
Ms. Bartlett and her husband Lars Jacobsen reside in Burlington with their two children, Nora Jacobsen, age 9, and Oscar Jacobsen, age 5. She is an avid skier and gardener.
