Chris Tobin wants The Daily Orange’s fundraiser to be more reflective of donor appreciation. In exchange for a free bumper when he contributes, he said he wants people to feel like he’s part of DO’s team.

Fundraising Manager Tobin joined DO over the summer along with Business Manager Chris Nucerino. Both have part-time roles within the organization.

“I think the most effective way to raise money is to ‘win your philanthropy and your vote of confidence with our ideas,'” Tobin said.

Nucerino started his own business in financial consulting in January, but says he has a lot of free time and wants to do something meaningful. Chris Tobin is also starting his own consultancy, Rootstock, along with his friends. But he said he has the ability to do more as he builds a customer base.

“I have enough… free time and feel like I can still contribute to a worthy organization,” Tobin said.

Beth Fritzinger, deputy chairman of the DO’s board of directors, said the new jobs are aimed at creating a more sustainable future for The Daily Orange. The Board concluded that the organization needs more leadership in both fundraising and business management, the roles that Tobin and Nusellino currently hold.

Over the past decade, DOs have slowly moved towards funding as a form of revenue. SU alum Haley Robertson, who previously served as editor-in-chief of the paper in his junior year and fundraising coordinator in his senior year, has shown little interest in fundraising within the DO in recent years. He said it’s getting more attention.

“Before I was involved in fundraising at the Daily Orange, it was entirely within the responsibility of management, and all fundraising campaigns were related to specific special projects,” says Robertson.

Previously, Nucerino and Tobin’s roles took the form of one title, General Manager. Mike Doering, who left the organization last summer, was the last person to fill the role.

Robertson currently works as a development associate for Report for America’s parent company, The Ground Truth Project, in a role similar to that of the DO’s funding coordinator in 2021.

Board chairman Stephen Dockery said in an email to the DO that he hopes fundraising will become “an established pillar of revenue stream” within the next year or two. Tobin said he is excited to begin work to help the DO expedite its fundraising efforts.

“My role is to help implement systems and practices, but there are some new strategies and philanthropic and alumni engagements to help DOs thrive, thrive and grow. It’s also about building a larger culture,” says Tobin. “That’s my job.”

Both Tobin and Nucerino say their first few weeks at the organization were spent understanding both its system and its culture.

In particular, Tobin says he wants to understand “under the hood” of The DO, to understand its past successful fundraising efforts and how the newspaper operates. He also said he wanted to help identify the DO’s fundraising message.

Like Tobin, Nucerino wants to consider the business. His first year at The DO is spent watching and learning from both the students working within the company and its board of directors. For now, Nucerino wants to act as a support.

Nucerino has worked with the local YMCA for nearly 30 years. For the past six years, he has worked as CEO of his YMCA in Auburn and Skony Telles. He said he found his Nucerino, who works at the YMCA, enjoys working with a typical college-age group, both in programming and hiring.

At The DO, he sees his job as being about trust.

“(It’s) building trust in the community, the students, the school and the board,” Nucerino said. And the cost, and of course the donation. ”

Dockery writes that DO “got lucky” with both Tobin and Nucerino.

“They have decades of experience in their respective fields and have top-notch organizations in the higher education and non-profit sectors,” he said.
