Introducing Stacie Watkins: New Development Officer at the UMW Foundation

The UMW Foundation is pleased to welcome Stacie Watkins to our team as the Development Officer for the UMW Foundation. Stacie started at Montana Western on February 6, 2024. 

Stacie is originally from Missoula, MT, and moved to Dillon six years ago. She has over twenty years of experience working with non-profit organizations around fundraising, grants, and program development. She has been working in the School of Outreach since May 2019 with the Road Scholar Program and most recently as the Pre-Awards Specialist with the Grants Team under the Office of Sponsored Programs. Stacie will continue to support the pre-award process for the University Grants Team. Stacie is also active with the Barrett Hospital Foundation. 

Stacie has a 10-year-old daughter, Braelie, who is in 4th grade. She enjoys spending time with her daughter, family, and friends and stays busy with activities that involve all levels of creativity and crafting.

"We are thrilled to have Stacie join the Foundation and Alumni team. The opportunity to hire someone with Stacie's fundraising and grant background is exciting. With her previous experience in the School of Outreach, Stacie has hit the ground running and is having an immediate impact on the work of the Foundation," said UMW Foundation Executive Director, Roxanne Engellant.
