Position: Associate Director of Development

Laurel Hosmer joined the University of Delaware in November 2016 as associate director of development. In this role, Hosmer will work with alumni, parents, and friends to develop the relationships and resources needed to ensure the success of all UD intercollegiate athletic programs and student-athletes.

Prior to coming to Newark, Hosmer spent two and a half years overseeing all annual fundraising, ticketing, and gameday tailgating efforts for Eastern Washington University. While at EWU, Hosmer served as the director of development for development and Revenue before being promoted to assistant athletic director for development and revenue.

During her time at EWU, Hosmer oversaw the transition and restructuring of the athletic annual fund, the Eagle Athletic Association, to the Eagle Athletic Fund to provide more benefits to donors and implement EWU’s first-ever priority point system and athletic specific CRM which resulted in a 262% growth in membership numbers from the prior year and 214% more in annual giving revenue than the previous all-time record. She ran and served as the primary contact for all premium seating and donor hospitality at football and men’s basketball gamedays and supported all non-athletic contest event operations and revenues. Additionally, Hosmer worked directly with EWU’s Foundation and Student Financial Service offices on a daily basis to ensure strong partnership and collaboration across pertinent University units.

Previously, Hosmer worked for The Georgia Bulldog Club in the University of Georgia Athletic Association. Her primary responsibility was the management and oversight of the G-Club (7,000+ member former student-athlete association). She established and executed the first-ever G-Club specific annual solicitation. Additionally, she worked directly with nearly 200 premium seat holders who donate over $4.2 million annually. Hosmer also identified a need for policies and procedures to include non-annual fund donors (who gave $2.9 million in the 2013 calendar year) in The Georgia Bulldog Club and implemented the corresponding stewardship campaign.

Hosmer started her career as a graduate assistant and intern for two years for the University of Massachusetts Minutemen with responsibilities in the development, compliance and business office. In her role in the development office, Hosmer re-launched and ran social media for the Minutemen Club, wrote and designed collateral materials and electronic communications distributed to donors, and provided critical support in the preparation and execution of Minutemen Club events. Through her position in the compliance and business office, Hosmer managed all student-athlete athletic aid, worked with the entire athletic department staff to ensure adherence to University and NCAA policies and procedures, and oversaw preparation for a compliance review through the transition from FCS to FBS status.

While at UMass, Hosmer earned her Masters of Science in Sport Management from the Mark H. McCormack School of Sport Management in May 2013.  A native of Winchester, Mass., Hosmer received her Bachelor's degree in Sociology from SUNYIT in May 2009 where she played soccer and served as captain her senior year.
