Tristan Mulcahy, a 2010 St. Bonaventure graduate, was named Director of Athletics Advancement at St. Bonaventure in August 2015.
Mulcahy will be responsible for all fundraising initiatives within the athletics department, primarily the annual Bonnies Athletic Fund campaign, which has a goal of reaching 1,500 members by May 31, 2016. He will also direct efforts to increase membership in the Sixth Man Club, which supports men’s basketball through annual gifts of $5,000 or more. All of Mulcahy’s work will support the strategic goals of the university and the department.
“It’s truly an honor to return to my alma mater. I can't thank (Athletics Director) Tim Kenney enough for giving me the opportunity to work alongside him,” said Mulcahy. “I look forward to meeting with SBU alumni, family, and friends to continue building support for the athletics programs moving forward.”
A native of St. Mary’s, Pa., Mulcahy previously spent the past six months in St. Bonaventure’s Office of Advancement as the associate director of annual giving.
Prior to returning to St. Bonaventure, Mulcahy worked at Boston College for two years as assistant director of athletics development. He also worked in athletics fundraising at Wake Forest from 2011-13.
Mulcahy was a three-year letterwinner for the Bonnies baseball team from 2006-10, missing one season due to injury. He graduated in 2010 with a bachelor’s degree in sociology. He also earned his Master's Degree from California University of Pennsylvania.
Mulcahy’s wife, Andrea, is an assistant women’s basketball coach at St. Bonaventure and also a 2010 Bona’s graduate. The couple live in Olean with their daughter, Harper.
