Traverse City native John Bogley will return to Northern Michigan to serve as Vice President of Philanthropy at Interlochen Center for the Arts. Bogley, who has extensive experience in fundraising and development, will be tasked with meeting ambitious goals in annual fund and endowment growth.

“As we approach our 100th anniversary, we are committed to making Interlochen accessible to all promising students, regardless of their financial circumstances. We plan to double the scholarship dollars available, strengthen and expand our programs, recruit preeminent faculty, and ensure Interlochen provides a truly world-class arts education,” said Interlochen Center for the Arts President Trey Devey. “John Bogley has built an incredibly successful career in fundraising, during which he has exceeded challenging goals time and again. I believe his skills, knowledge, and determination, coupled with his strong belief in the mission and vision of Interlochen will be instrumental in successfully propelling Interlochen into our second century.”

Most recently Bogley served as the Vice President for Development & Alumni Relations at Whitman College, where he led the largest comprehensive campaign in institutional history. During that time, Whitman built five new buildings and renovated many others, endowed two dozen faculty positions, and completed the comprehensive campaign, exceeding the $150 million fundraising goal by more than 10 percent. He also tripled the institution’s annual fund.

Previously, Bogley served as Whitman’s Director of Admission and Financial Aid, increasing the applicant pool by 50 percent. He holds a Bachelor of Arts from Whitman College, where he graduated magna cum laude. He also holds a certification from Vanderbilt University’s Professional Institute for Institutional Advancement.

“Growing up in this area, I was strongly influenced by Interlochen and the terrific music programs in the Traverse City Area Public Schools.” said John Bogley, “ I developed a deep passion for the arts early in life, which informs my values to this day. I am excited to bring my institutional leadership experience and fundraising track record back to northern Michigan to help ensure Interlochen remains at the forefront of arts education.”

“Recruiting a Traverse City native for this critical role is both symbolically and strategically important,” continued Devey, “With his strong local ties and deep appreciation for the area, John is uniquely capable of strengthening Interlochen’s community partnerships. Collaborating with local schools and businesses is key toward elevating the Grand Traverse region as a vibrant, culturally rich destination that can attract top talent.”
