On Being a Bear

Fargo, ND native Jenny Shoop is as good as any UNC blue and gold fan that you’ll find in the Northern Colorado community. Jenny first came to UNC as a student athlete, recruited to play for the women’s golf team, and chose to make Greeley her new home. A well-known face and name among many loyal Bears fans, Jenny serves as a senior member of both the athletics and advancement teams. In fact, many of the programs and scholarships that support current student athletes are due to Jenny’s leadership in the UNC donor community, including the launch of UNC’s Women’s Walk and fundraising strategy for UNC's sports performance center.

As AVP for Development, Jenny manages the UNC development team and oversees all of UNC’s NCAA athletics fundraising and donor engagement. As team leader, Jenny sets the strategy for UNC's major gift development, prospect research and management, and donor relations programs. In her role, Jenny works closely with university administration to help donors find their passion in supporting the success of UNC students in the classroom, in competition and in preparing for careers.
