Kaylee M Highstrom
My career in development began in 2001 at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs, where I served as an associate development officer and specialized in major gifts, annual giving, and volunteer management. Later I joined the research team at the University of Minnesota Foundation and worked as a senior researcher, building prospect pools for six colleges on campus. In my prior role as CLA's associate director of development, I managed stewardship & donor relations, corporate & foundation relations, and campaign planning. I currently serve as CLA's campaign director. I am committed to helping donors realize their philanthropic goals by aligning their interests with the needs of our faculty and students. Amplifying the joy and impact of giving is at the heart of what I do.
