Office of Advancement




Tom Hewitt

Queen's Department of Development assists our alumni and friends with their giving to the University, working with prospective donors to help them make the right gift to satisfy their philanthropic goals.

It is important to us that all our donors understand the impact of their gifts, the difference they can make, and how their values are reflected in the many priorities of the University.

Tom Hewitt
Chief Development Officer
Effective May 1, 2011
