Foundation Gift Officer
University of West Georgia
As a Gift Officer, Frater Farmer is responsible for new donor identification, cultivation and stewardship of existing donors. His goal is to increase overall retention and giving levels through relationship management.
I was initiated into Xi-Theta Chapter at West Georgia College in May of 1988. As an collegiate Frater, I held the positions of Rush Chairman, Hypophetes, Epiprytanis and Prytanis. I have served as the president of Xi-Theta’s Alumni Association, as well as a Rush Coach.
Prior to coming on staff in 1993 as a Chapter Management Consultant, I taught high school social studies in Carroll County, Georgia. I was later promoted to Senior Chapter Management Consultant and then became Associate Director of Chapter Development and Northeast Regional Director. I was Director of Marketing and Coordinator of the Fraternity's Centennial Celebration and was inducted into the Southern Order of Honor at the 1999 Conclave in Indianapolis. At the 2001 Conclave, I was inducted into the Order of the North.
I was Director of Member Services and editor of The TEKE Magazine for two years. From June 2002 until June of 2010, I served as the Northeast Regional Director.
I am a proud donor to the TKE Educational Foundation (Scholars Society).
