Carol Wacker

Senior Development Specialist
Office of Development

Carol has been advocating for non-profit organizations for nearly 20 years. She earned her BA in Mass Communications from UWM in 1990 and is a Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE). She enjoys harvesting the stories and experiences of people, getting to know them on an individual basis and bridging their dreams and vision with the mission of an organization. She believes strongly in forging relationships that will impact people, families and community. Through a philosophy grounded in individualized donor relations and exemplary “customer” service, many have experienced the joy of giving which has translated to meaningful and lasting gifts for many causes over the years.

While Carol has provided leadership to comprehensive development efforts in a number of arenas, she is most passionate about higher education. Carol lives with her family in Waukesha and enjoys trips to the family cabin, sporting events, volunteering and horse-back riding in the Kettle Moraine forest.
