Fundraising leader to boost Colorado Initiative for Molecular Biology

By Staff


Jessica Wright will lead efforts to generate private support for the Colorado Initiative for Molecular Biology (CIMB), the University of Colorado Foundation announced last week. For two years, Wright has led fundraising efforts for the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences on the Boulder campus, where she has restructured the college's team fundraising approach, reconnected the college and departments with key alumni, and managed critical donor relationships resulting in multimillion-dollar gifts. A primary responsibility for Wright will be fundraising for the 257,000-square-foot Biotechnology Building, begun in September and slated for completion in fall 2011.
