“I give to Creighton because I am grateful for the education I received as a Creighton student. I joined Creighton in 2009 as an employee and I made my first gift in my first month of employment. I hope my gift will inspire other recent alumni – and new employees – to make a gift.”
- Cortney Wolff, BA'03, Assistant Director of Principal Gifts, Office of Development, University Relations
Cortney Wolff, BA'03 made her first gift to the University to support the educational atmosphere that prepared her professionally and developed her spirituality.
Cortney made a gift to Creighton within a month of beginning employment. Cortney wanted to show her alma mater that she was grateful for her undergraduate experience and grateful to return to campus as Assistant Director of Principal Gifts.
A native of Waterloo, Nebraska, Cortney was drawn to Creighton as a student because of the presence of spirituality on campus, the fine arts program and the opportunities for leadership on campus. Throughout her Creighton experience, Cortney encountered faculty and staff that encouraged her to question and explore faith traditions. The generosity of the Creighton community allowed Cortney to attend Creighton for all four years.
“In selecting Creighton as my university, scholarship was really important for me.” Cortney now has a strong appreciation for giving to Creighton because of the extent to which unrestricted gifts support financial aid and scholarship. “There are a lot of talented kids who need it.”
As a Creighton staff member and young alumna, Cortney plans to continue giving to the University. “It’s not about the amount,” Cortney says, “it’s about participation.
“Each of us has some power to make a difference and to affect change. In the spirit of magis – to do more for others and be more for others – our gifts answer the call to help attract and retain talented students.”
