Archdiocese hires new director of development and stewardship

| September 2, 2010


Michael F. Halloran, executive director of The Catholic Foundation of the Diocese of Sacramento, has been chosen by the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis following an extensive search to serve as its director of development and stewardship beginning Nov. 1.

Halloran will be in charge of all fundraising, including the annual Catholic Services Appeal, which supports a variety of parish, education and social justice ministries.

A graduate of St. John’s University in Collegeville, Halloran has more than 20 years experience in management, strategic planning and development for non-profit religious and educational organizations as well as for-profit organizations.

At the Diocese of Sacramento, he developed and implemented an Annual Catholic Appeal that resulted in a 200 percent increase in dollars raised and a 300 percent participation increase over a two-year period, according to a news release from the archdiocese.

From 2000 to 2006, he served The University of Minnesota as associate athletics director of development. In that capacity, he secured $65 million in support for the university and led the athletic department’s development efforts for a new on-campus football stadium, the news release said.

Halloran’s career includes six years as a development executive with the Archdiocese of Indianapolis and two years at the Diocese of Fargo in a similar capacity.  He has also conducted capital, stewardship and annual fundraising workshops for institutions across the United States and Canada.
