NSU Vice President for Advancement and Community Relations, Jennifer O’Flannery Anderson, Ph.D., was named Outstanding Fundraising Professional at the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Fort Lauderdale/Broward Chapter National Philanthropy Day Awards luncheon held at the Signature Grand on November 9.

O’Flannery Anderson joined NSU on August 1, 2013 from Florida Atlantic University (FAU) where she was Vice President for Community Engagement and Executive Director of the FAU Foundation.  Previously, she was President and CEO of the United Way of Broward County.

She provides leadership for NSU’s efforts regarding community engagement and support, including all fundraising and stewardship activities, alumni relations, and special events. Under her leadership, NSU has received a national Silver Anvil award from the PRSA (Public Relations Society of America) and several national awards of excellence from CASE (Council for the Advancement and Support of Education).  She is focused on raising the profile of NSU, growing support for the university, and engaging with the institution’s constituents.  She is currently spearheading Realizing Potential – The Campaign for Nova Southeastern University, the largest philanthropic campaign in the history of the doctoral research institution and Broward County. She reports directly to NSU President and CEO George L. Hanbury II, Ph.D.

For the past three years, NSU has exceeded its annual fundraising goals and raised more than $70 million. During that time, her team’s efforts have resulted in 17 $1 million+ gifts to support such valuable initiatives as cancer research, programs for developmentally-challenged youth, and scholarships for deserving students.

O’Flannery Anderson is revered by colleagues throughout the university and South Florida for her dedication to strong leadership and a lifetime commitment of philanthropic service. Three of her colleagues contributed to a tribute video played at the luncheon.
