Brian J. DeFilippis

Throughout my life I have been fortunate to experience, firsthand, the powerful impact of philanthropy. As a college student I was privileged to receive an alumni scholarship. Without the support of that selfless alumnus, my life would have taken a very different course.

Having directly benefited from the generosity of others, I ultimately discovered a calling for fundraising. For nearly two decades, I have been rewarded with innumerable opportunities to pay it forward by securing gifts, many of which have, in ways both large and small, altered countless lives.

“This institution enjoys immense possibilities, visionary leaders and a deeply passionate community.”

In just a few months I have become familiar with many exceptional members of the Towson University community—our diverse, talented and dedicated students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends. Their collective passion for Towson University is evident each and every day, and the opportunities to celebrate our achievements and expand our impact are present across the institution.

It is an honor to lead Towson University’s advancement efforts. This institution enjoys immense possibilities, visionary leaders and a deeply passionate community. I look forward to working with everyone to build upon our strong foundation and to realize our tremendous potential.
