2017 Outstanding Fundraising Professional of the Year

How to Succeed in Fundraising without Really Trying

Is it hard work, luck, or something in between? Join us as Kevin Foyle, 2017 Outstanding Fundraising Executive of the Year, explores this critical question. One of Houston’s fundraising powerhouses, Kevin will share insight for how to bring out the very best of your fundraising abilities… so you’re poised to seize opportunity when the moment is right. His presentation will build upon seven core ingredients essential to making all fundraisers a success throughout their career.


Kevin J. Foyle is the vice president for development and public affairs and chief development officer for the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth). He oversees all aspects of UTHealth’s development program including principal, planned, major and annual gifts, corporate and foundation relations and administrative services. During his four year tenure with the institution, he has increased their annual new gift commitments from an average of $25 million to an institutional record-breaking $123 million. As a result, the university has launched its first comprehensive fundraising campaign setting a target of $500 million.


Prior to UTHealth, he served as the associate vice president for development at Rice University.  As director of the Centennial Campaign raising nearly $1.1 billion and strategist for the Centennial Celebration, he managed a team of 70 fundraising officers and staff members and was responsible for all individual giving units, including planned giving, school-based and regional major gifts, annual giving, stewardship, communications, events and prospect research.  Foyle was financially responsible for an annual budget of $4 million as well as an international fundraising portfolio raising more than $57 million in personal campaign solicitations.  Having worked at Rice for more than thirteen years, he also managed the major gifts and annual giving programs during the university’s $500 million comprehensive campaign and served as a regional director of development.
