Penn State athletics continued some behind the scenes changes on Friday as the department announced the hiring of Spencer Milne as Assistant Athletic Director for Annual Giving. 

“My family and I are very excited to join the Penn State community,” Milne said in a statement. “We have known for some time what a special place Happy Valley is and are more than impressed with the Nittany Lion Club team.  This is a fantastic opportunity to make something that is already great even better.  I can’t wait to get started.”

“We’re excited to have Spencer join the Intercollegiate Athletics Advancement team,” said Joe Foley, Senior Associate Athletic Director for Advancement.  “His professional background, accomplishments and expertise make him an ideal fit to provide Nittany Lion Club donors with great service, while securing the critical resources needed to ensure our student-athletes’ success.”

While at Penn State, Milne will oversee Intercollegiate Athletics’ annual giving efforts, including ensuring lifelong, annual support from Penn State alumni, parents, and fan. According to Penn State these duties will include oversight of the Nittany Lion Club, which secures annual support from more than 22,000 donors each year.

Prior to joining Penn State, Milne worked with the College of William & Mary for the past 11 years, most recently as Assistant Athletic Director for Marketing, Promotions and Ticket Services. Milne will begin his duties at Penn State on June 20.

Penn State has yet to announce a fundraising plan for the recently unveiled facilities master plan which will include a renovation of Beaver Stadium.
