Reeher Launches Prime Officer Recognition Awards

ST. PAUL, MINN. (August 30, 2017) — Reeher, developers of the shared management platform that is transforming the way colleges and universities raise money, has announced a new recognition program for top performing gift officers. As a part of its annual Reeher Vista Executive Conference being held in Minneapolis August 29-31, Reeher shared the details of this first annual Prime Officer Awards.

Leveraging decades of data from its customers in the Reeher Community, Reeher has been able to uncover key activities that successful gift officers accomplish which in turn drives more major gifts to their organization. From that information, Reeher set criteria based on the number of gift officer visits and submitted proposals amounting over $25,000 to determine which gift officers would receive the Prime Officer award.

“This inaugural year of our Prime Officer Awards will recognize about 9% of the gift officers from the Reeher Community,” said Andy Reeher, President and CEO of Reeher. “In a field that is redefining success in major gift fundraising, this award is intended to help our customers recognize and motivate the highest levels of performance.”

Reeher will alert the recipients of the Prime Officer award in September along with a token of the company’s appreciation for their hard work over the last year. The long-term goal is to award top gift officers annually based on data from the higher education institution’s previous fiscal year.
