I am the Assistant Director for Online Giving at the University of Washington. My core responsibilities are the UW Foundation website and all outbound solicitation emails. My budget even gives me a project manager for much of the day to day stuff. I'd be happy to chat as well.

I basically am responsible for this function for Dartmouth College. I
manage web strategy for both direct online giving and online
marketing of capital naming opportunities. I'd be happy to share what
I know, if you'd like to chat.
