Biography

Andrew Allred, Senior Vice President, joined GG+A in 2012. He brings to the firm more than 25 years of professional experience in development, fundraising, and management for higher education, medical, and cultural institutions.

Andrew has worked with clients in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Asia to build long-term fundraising success in ongoing development efforts and campaigns through consulting, coaching, and interim management positions. By specializing in a team approach, Andrew has helped clients create new staffing models, which, in turn, help them achieve greater fundraising success. He has extensive experience evaluating current fundraising programs; identifying fundraising opportunities and strategies; organizing fundraising priorities; guiding the planning and execution of major campaigns; and managing all facets of a development program, including planned, principal, major, annual giving, stewardship, advancement services, and donor relations.
Andrew’s wealth of experience working with complex universities, cultural institutions and healthcare systems, as well as cultural institutions, allows him to understand each client’s distinct culture of philanthropy, helping them build accelerated, sustainable fundraising programs.

Andrew has been a leader at GG+A in its virtual practice, having delivered gift officer training, one-on-one gift officer and management coaching, and report deliveries over video feed since 2016.

Before joining GG+A, Andrew was Vice President for Advancement at Christian Brothers University (CBU). There, he led the advancement and alumni departments to establish a culture of continuous process improvement, increased engagement among constituents, and generated strategic five-year plans for the University’s annual and capital campaigns. He also solicited and secured the five largest gifts in CBU’s history and led his team to a 97% increase in overall giving.

Prior to this role, Andrew served as Director of Development, Colleges of Medicine, Nursing, and Allied Health Sciences at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. Andrew also held a vice president role with the American Heart Association and was a patient campaign director with the National Foundation for Transplants.
