Alex Parsell

Major Gifts Assistant

Alex came to Michigan Radio in October of 2016, shortly after his studies at Michigan State University. He works with Larry Jonas to facilitate major gifts.

In college, aside from studying political theory and economics, Alex worked for Greenline, MSU’s student-run call center, raising dollars for student scholarships and other university programs. While with the call center, Alex transitioned to supervising teams of callers and ultimately managing the calling room’s production and messaging for two years. This experience led him to seek out a career in non-profit fundraising.

As a long-time listener, he considers himself extremely fortunate to have found a professional start at Michigan Radio where his other passions for writing, journalism, and civics are engaged.
