Deb Bacon

Director of Advancement Operations



I grew up in Exeter and have always lived in the Seacoast area. In 1983, I joined the Academy in the Annual Giving Office. Over the years, I continued fundraising for Exeter in both the Capital Giving and Planned Giving offices. In 1998, I was assigned to my current position in Advancement Operations, which oversees both the operations and information services teams. Those teams are responsible for fundraising systems procurement; configuration and management; records management; gift recording; information management and dissemination; reporting; training and support of all Institutional Advancement staff members; ensuring compliance with regulatory agencies; promoting adoption of industry best practices; and writing policy and procedural documentation for IA.
