Executive Director of Development, Alumni and Student Engagement

View bio

With just more than 40 years of development and alumni experience, Edward G. Kardos has spent his entire career in educational philanthropy work with 29 years at VCU in three schools on both campuses. He currently serves the School of Education.

Before service to the School of Education, Ed was the Executive Director of Development at the Schools of Nursing and Dentistry. He served as Benedictine High School’s Director of Development and the first full-time Annual Giving Director at James Madison University. He is a Nina Abady Award recipient (2004), the highest award given by the Virginia Association of Fundraising Executives for lifetime career excellence.

Donor and student focused, Ed has enjoyed the “art” of connecting the dream of a donor with the dream of the institution. In his own words: “One of many benefits of spending nearly three decades at one university is that it has been very gratifying to see donors I’ve worked with become fully engaged in VCU and that the student experience has been elevated.”
