Director of Major and Alumni Giving
Brian Gioielli joined the MCAD staff in 2011 as the Director of Major and Alumni Giving. Given his passion in creatively engaging individuals in community causes and youth development, Brian is delighted to be connecting to MCAD alumni and friends.
Brian’s previous professional experience includes three years with St. Paul’s Riverview Economic Development Association (REDA) where he coordinated fundraising, community relations, and neighborhood relations for that city’s Cinco de Mayo Fiesta, one of the 10 largest events of its kind in the United States. Prior to REDA, Brian was District Director of Fundraising at the Muscular Dystrophy Association, and a Youth Director at the YMCA Camp.
Beyond his work experience, Brian is actively engaged in rallying support of his peers and investing in the community through volunteer activities. In 2007, he co-founded The 12 Foundation to raise funds to various local charities, he volunteers as a sales manager for the online arts and fashion publication L’Etoile, and was a 2010 finalist for the One Man Minneapolis competition.
