Marc Alexander


Director of Development and Membership

As the Director of Development and Membership at the University YMCA, where he has been working since 2018, Marc oversees the organization’s fundraising efforts, including relations with donors, grants and the annual fund drive. He enjoys developing relationships and exploring new outreach opportunities, and is grateful for the many wonderful people he gets to work with daily: the students, the staff, volunteers and the alumni; and the fact that they are all connected through a thread of change in a positive way.

Marc graduated from Vanderbilt University where he majored in political science and history and came to the Y after being involved in Dump & Run as a volunteer.  In his free time he is an avid reader, enjoys watching movies and a cavalcade of sports.  Music is an important part of Marc’s life, which is not a surprise since both his parents are musicians.  He plays the piano on a near daily basis, still picks up his trumpet once in a while and loves attending live shows in Champaign-Urbana and abroad whenever possible.  A Champaign native, he is (sometimes regrettably) a huge Illini fan and long-time season ticket holder.
