About Scott

A member of the BGCF team since 2016, Scott is passionate about helping generous people match their passions with causes and introducing them to strategies to make their giving simpler, more dynamic, collaborative and perpetual.

“I’m grateful that my parents modeled for me the practice of giving back.  From a very early age I understood the responsibility to share our resources to support those less fortunate and uplift our communities for everyone.”

Scott’s professional experience includes 14 years in higher education fundraising at Georgetown College, the University of Kentucky, and Midway University, and 10 years in financial services with MassMutual Financial Group.

He and his wife, Donna Jo, enjoy trips to visit their adult children, Kirby and Riley.  An avid sports fan, Scott unapologetically supports the Cincinnati Reds and Kentucky Wildcats.  He enjoys unskilled golfing and breakfast.
