10/18/2006 Linfield College hires new Director of Planned Giving
McMINNVILLE - Linfield College alumnus Craig Haisch has been named director of planned giving at Linfield College. Haisch, a 1995 graduate, is in charge of securing gifts, both outright and deferred, that benefit Linfield's endowments and capital projects.
?Craig is a great asset to the Linfield team and we are excited to see how his past planned giving experience will be incorporated into his work as a director at Linfield,? Bruce Wyatt, vice president of college relations, said.
Haisch previously worked for the Salem Hospital Foundation as the major gifts officer. His work included writing proposals and grants to benefit hospital programs, processing estate gifts and developing the foundation's first major capital campaign project.
Prior to working for the Salem Hospital Foundation, Haisch was the professional development programs manager at Western Oregon University. During his time there he developed a web-based Masters of Arts in Teaching program and was responsible for curriculum, program and budget development.
Haisch began his career track while a student at Linfield. He served as office assistant for the Office of Conferences and Events Planning and, upon graduating with a degree in mathematics, he worked full-time as assistant director for that department.
Haisch holds not only a Bachelor of Science from Linfield, but also a Master of Education from Oregon State University.
