Bethany Hires New Fundraiser

Doug Macias

Bethany Theological Seminary has hired Doug Macias as Director of Fundraising and Constituent Relations. Macias has served as Community Development Officer at Natco Credit Union since 2021. He has 20 years experience in the credit union industry. Macias has held positions with Atlas Community Credit Union, Missouri Credit Union Association, CUNA Mutual Group, and The Revenue Path Group.

An active volunteer leader in the local community, Macias has served on the boards of the non-profit organizations Birth-to-Five, Girls Inc., and Safety Village of Wayne County. He is also active with the Wayne County Chamber of Commerce.

“I am excited to welcome Doug Macias to our Institutional Advancement team,” says President Jeff Carter. “Doug’s experience in sales and community engagement will serve the Seminary very well. I believe he will strengthen our relationships with our loyal donors and help us to identify additional individuals and organizations who will support Bethany in the future.  From my first conversations with Doug, it has been clear that his interests and passions align very well with Bethany’s mission.”

In this new role, Macias will develop and lead the Seminary’s “mass-market” fundraising efforts, as well as working with individual donors in support of the annual fund and Flourish: A Campaign for Bethany Theological Seminary. His first day in the office will be June 3, 2024.

“When I first read about this position, it sounded like the perfect match for me,” says Macias. “I am looking forward to connecting with alumni and friends of Bethany and garnering financial support for Bethany’s important and inspiring mission.”
