Clarke Gafke

Ruffalo Noel Levitz
Vice President, Key Account Partnerships
Clark Gafke’s first alumni phone solicitation occurred in the fall of 1986 as a freshman student for the University of Missouri - Columbia.  As a student caller, he raised $374,000 ($831,000 today) in alumni pledges for the Mizzou Annual Fund.

Since graduation, Clark has traveled the U.S. and Canada working directly with universities, colleges, hospitals, museums, public broadcasting, and other non-profit organizations.  His work centers on designing solicitation campaigns which enable organizations to reach their annual and capital campaign goals.

Clark’s experience includes building and evaluating strategic fundraising plans, caller and phone program management, evaluating phone room managers, working within digital channels, and cultivating major and planned gift relationships.

He is a frequent speaker at CASE, AFP conferences and on many college campuses.  He is a past president for the Las Vegas AFP chapter, former national delegate, and past chair of the chapter’s education committee and every-member campaign.

He is an avid supporter and volunteer for 4-H. He enjoys fishing and traveling with his wife, Marilynn, and their two daughters, Lauren (16) and Amanda (10).
