            President and CEO George Nichols III last week named Stephen J. Grourke, CAP®, CFRE, of Red Hill as senior vice president for advancement and alumni relations at The American College of Financial Services beginning April 1, 2019. Grourke comes to The American College from Villanova University where he served as executive director for the Office of Estate and Gift Planning.

            Grourke will be responsible for leading the Advancement team, and the development and implementation of The American College's advancement efforts for sustainable long-term growth in unrestricted, restricted and endowment funds. He will also oversee The College's current $17.5 million fundraising campaign projected to successfully conclude in 2020.

            "Steve has a proven record of building a culture of philanthropy and we look forward to him leading our advancement efforts and broadening the reach of our alumni relations program," Nichols said. "His entire career has been focused on advancing the mission of nonprofits and his fundraising expertise will better enable us to fulfill our mission to benefit society by creating and delivering financial education that promotes lifelong learning and ethical practices."

            Grourke comes to The American College with two decades of experience working in advancement, most recently as part of the senior team that led Villanova to secure $760 million during its most recent and largest comprehensive campaign, while growing the alumni giving rate to 30 percent. Grourke personally assisted individuals and families who committed over $60 million in philanthropic revenue during the campaign.

            Grourke earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in history from Gwynedd-Mercy University and a Master of Public Administration from Eastern Washington University. He holds the Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy® designation from The American College of Financial Services, and is a Certified Fund Raising Executive.

            He is the vice president of the board of directors of the Planned Giving Council of Greater Philadelphia, chairman of the board of advisors of the Upper Perkiomen Valley YMCA, and secretary and coach for the Upper Perkiomen Girls Softball League. Grourke and his wife, Erin, have four children and live in Red Hill.
