Director of Regional Advancement
Elizabeth Feist joined the Syracuse University advancement team in 2014. For the past seven years, Feist has been a fundraiser for small liberal arts colleges including Hamilton College and her alma mater, Cornell College. While at Cornell, she was a major gift fundraiser managing the College’s most populous region—the greater Chicago area. Originally from the Midwest, Feist and her husband, Cameron, son Benjamin, and lazy but beloved beagle, Tobey, moved to Central New York in 2013.
