Stefanie Kelly '98

NDSU Foundation Team Member since 2014

Stefanie, a director of athletic development, helps lead philanthropy and Team Makers efforts in the Twin Cities metro area. Prior to this role, Stefanie served as a development professional for Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota, and Minnesota State University, Mankato, where she was also head coach for the women's track and field team.

Stefanie loves all things sports and believes that participation in sports teaches life lessons in a unique and memorable way. She and her husband, Jason, reside in the Twin Cities with their two daughters, Taylor and Skylar, and athletics are a family affair. When Stefanie isn't helping NDSU alumni and friends link their passion with a meaningful cause, she can be found cheering on her daughters at their various athletic events.

"Philanthropy connects people who have a passion for making a difference with a cause they care about. As a former NDSU track and field student-athlete, I'm passionate about and believe in the student-athlete experience at NDSU. Helping alumni and friends who share that same passion and being able to connect them with their personal cause is very rewarding."
