Jeremy has helped more than a dozen RSC clients meet and exceed aggressive fundraising goals, and we’re proud to recognize him as our Principal Consultant.”
The Memphis Symphony Orchestra, in partnership with RSC and managed by Hatch, created an extraordinary rebound season in 2014/15, surpassing all fundraising goals by 15% and adding hundreds of new and re-engaged donors to the patron base.
“RSC’s engagement has been key to our turnaround, which is in progress,” said Roland Valliere, President & CEO of the Memphis Symphony Orchestra. “We are ahead of where we expected to be and RSC has been instrumental to that success."
RSC client, the Blue Barn Theatre of Omaha, worked closely with Hatch to launch a $7 million comprehensive fundraising campaign, which included a $5 million new theatre venue scheduled to open this fall, while expanding the institution’s annual fund by 100%.
Prior to joining RSC, Mr. Hatch served as the founding Development Director for the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel, Indiana, where he built one of the most robust sponsorship programs in the United States. In addition, he has worked on numerous capital and endowment campaigns, including Indiana University Art Museum’s $17 million effort that tripled the organization’s endowment and the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis's $30 million New Visions, Lasting Values campaign. Jeremy’s international work includes Ireland’s Galway Arts Festival, where he assisted in the growth of an expanded sponsorship program, creation of an annual fund, and the development of international partnerships for major project support.
Jeremy Hatch has taught fundraising coursework as Adjunct Faculty at Indiana University and recently completed a six-year board term with the Indianapolis Fringe Festival. He holds both the CFRE certification and the Certificate in Fundraising Management from the School of Philanthropy, along with a B.
