In Financial Affairs, our staff members work diligently to uphold the highest standards in accounting and stewardship practices.
The Financial Affairs area is responsible for processing, recording and reporting all financial activities related to the SIUE Foundation. These activities include, but are not limited to, preparing the payments from the various accounts at the Foundation, preparing the SIUE Foundation annual financial statements, and reviewing payment requests from University units to make sure the donors’ gifts are being used as directed. In addition, we work with the investment managers and the SIUE Foundation Board Investment Committee to ensure that the monies are invested wisely in order to maximize returns while meeting liquidity needs and controlling risk exposure.
The Information Systems area is responsible for the database that serves as the primary information resource for the SIUE Foundation and the SIUE Alumni Association. Charged with securing, capturing, updating and reviewing information on both SIUE alumni and donors, the staff diligently works to ensure the integrity of the data. In addition, the Information Systems area fills information requests to further the goals of the SIUE Foundation, the SIUE Alumni Association and the University.
