Office of Advancement

The mission of the Young Harris College Office of Advancement is to encourage support for YHC from alumni, friends, corporations and foundations. The Office of Advancement includes Development and Planned Giving, Advancement Services, Alumni Services and Communications and Marketing. These departments work together to communicate information to the College's constituents, encourage and facilitate financial gifts, uphold the YHC image and brand and, most importantly, build and maintain relationships that benefit YHC and its students, alumni and friends.

Through comprehensive communication and personal interaction, the Office of Advancement lays the foundation for a donor-driven, relationship-based plan of advancement for Young Harris College. We are liaisons between and advocates for YHC, its alumni and friends of the College. We strive to create opportunities for meaningful involvement with YHC, to build positive relationships and to promote financial commitment to the College.
