Jacqueline D’Ercole

Jacqui serves as the internal manager of the operations, stewardship, donor relations and communications efforts of the Advancement Office. This includes the oversight of donor acknowledgments, recognition, endowment reporting, external communications and marketing, information systems, gift accounting, prospect management and research. 


Jacqui joined the Ursinus College Advancement Office in October 2013 as Director of Advancement Communications and Donor Relations. In that role, she oversaw the donor relations, communications and stewardship efforts of the office, with particular emphasis on the college’s comprehensive campaign. She moved into her new role as Senior Director in May 2018.

Prior to coming to Ursinus, she spent eight and a half years working at the University of Pennsylvania. Her most recent role was as Senior Associate Director of Stewardship at the Wharton School, where she spearheaded donor relations initiatives on its behalf. Jacqui’s career at Penn spanned the University’s entire $3.5 billion Making History campaign, and she played a key role in developing end-of-campaign donor outreach for Wharton.

In her free time, Jacqui enjoys horseback riding, hiking, biking, and tennis. She is also an avid fan of the Philadelphia Flyers and Phillies sports teams.
