Gary Rounding, chief fund-raiser at Wayne State University, has accepted the position of senior vice president of philanthropy at Henry Ford Health System.
Rounding joined Wayne State from the University of Alabama four years ago.Since arriving, Wayne State's development staff tripled and annual giving went from $25 million to $75 million, he said.Rounding will move to his new post in late October or early November.
Rounding had two titles at WSU: vice president of advancement and president of the Wayne State University Foundation.He said he expected President Irvin Reid to name interim replacements to both positions today.
Rounding is leaving two years into the silent phase of a $500 million campaign the university hopes to kick off publicly by the end of 2004 or early 2005.The university already has raised $150 million so far, which is about $22 million ahead of schedule, Rounding said.
Rounding said he will examine the pros and cons of forming a foundation board.Henry Ford is planning a systemwide capital campaign, and a foundation board, if formed, must first be approved by the board of directors, Rounding said.
The final goal for the campaign has not been set nor has the start date for the silent phase, he said.
Annual giving is about $25 million to $30 million now, and Rounding said the board hired him to take that to the "next level," which he described as $50 to $70 million annually.

"I've never seen the supply of fund-raisers so low in Detroit," said Gary Rounding, Wayne State's senior vice president for development and alumni Affairs and president of the Wayne State University Foundation."There are a lot more nonprofit organizations in the area.There is more competition for money."Fund-raisers' salaries in Detroit traditionally have been lower than the national average, but the supply shortage is changing that trend, he said."It's just in the past couple of years that we've been able to develop an appreciation for how the rest of the country is behaving," Rounding said.Wayne State pays fund-raisers $45,000 to $125,000 a year, he said.Rounding usually hires fund-raisers with nonprofit experience: Half his staff members have master's degrees and 20 percent doctorates.The labor shortage has forced some development heads to look outside metro Detroit and the nonprofit sector.
