Meet Director of Advancement Monica Manes Gay

Monica Manes Gay brings nearly 25 years of experience in fundraising, stewardship, event planning, and marketing to WT. Most recently, as the Development and Marketing Director at Lauri Ann West Community Center, Monica brought a $9 million capital campaign to a successful conclusion, ensuring the continuation of the Center’s mission to provide a safe place for all to learn, play, and grow.

At CASA of Allegheny County, an organization dedicated to recruiting volunteers who advocate for at-risk children, Monica’s work fundraising, organizing volunteers, and representing the organization throughout the region gave her a natural connection to WT’s credo, Think also of the comfort and the rights of others.

Monica is eager to meet WT community members around the world. “With each parent, trustee, alum, and student I meet, I gain a deeper appreciation for the impact that WT can have on so many different aspects of a person’s life—and therefore on how they interact with their communities. I am eager to share these stories in ways that advance our Mission.”
