Michael  Bamonti

Position:
Assistant Director of Athletics/Director of Athletic Development

Michael Bamonti, a 2003 graduate of what was then Loyola College in Maryland, joined Loyola University Maryland's staff as Director of Athletic Development and Assistant Athletic Director in October 2015 following stints at the University of Pennsylvania and Temple University.

Bamonti joined the Penn Champions Club staff in 2014 as a Major Gifts Officer after spending five years on the athletics staff at Temple. Bamonti will oversee Loyola University Maryland’s athletics fundraising efforts that have seen record numbers the past several years.

“Mike, as an alumnus, recognizes the value of a Loyola education and more importantly the entire co-curricular experience,” said Terrence Sawyer, J.D., the University’s vice president for advancement. “He understands athletics plays a valuable role in the overall fabric of the Loyola community and serves as a portal for people to engage with the University. “As we continue to advance the priorities of our Bright Minds, Bold Hearts campaign, we have every confidence that Mike’s experience and love for Loyola will help the Greyhounds achieve continued success. I am excited to have Mike be part of our team.”

Over the last two years, the Greyhounds have raised more than $6.3 million in cash, a number that represents an increase of more than 700 percent since 2009-2010. Through external support in recent years, Loyola athletics has completed a $3.2 million tennis center and finished four video boards and LED signage in Reitz Arena that will continue to enhance student-athlete and fan experience.

“I am humbled and honored with the opportunity that the University has entrusted me with,” Bamonti said. “Like the staff members whom I already have had a chance to meet, I am so proud of Loyola and look forward to working with our alumni, donors and coaches to further strengthen the Greyhounds heritage. I can’t think of a better fit personally and professionally than to be back home on the Evergreen campus, helping to secure the resources necessary for our student-athletes and teams to be successful today and beyond.”

At Penn, Bamonti focused his fundraising efforts for several sports, managing the fundraising for alumni and development. He was a part of the Champions Club team that secured more than $10 million in cash and $18 million in overall commitments during the 2015 fiscal year.

In his year with the Quakers, Bamonti worked to bring in $1.25 million in annual fund contributions; he has also taught a development and fundraising class at Temple’s graduate program for sport business.

“We are thrilled to welcome Mike back to Loyola,” said Jim Paquette, Loyola’s assistant vice president and director of athletics. “He brings excellent experience working at Temple and Penn where philanthropy play significant roles in athletics success. Mike will develop strong relationships that help increase the private support necessary to advance Greyhounds Athletics.”

Bamonti’s stint at Temple saw him touch numerous areas of the Owls’ athletic department including development, marketing and gameday operations. He arrived at Temple as a Marketing Graduate Extern and created a strategic promotional plan that increased attendance at the Owls’ Olympic sport programs; he also served as an Assistant Gameday Coordinator for the University’s football and men’s and women’s basketball programs.

In March 2010, Bamonti accepted a role as Events and Projects Coordinator for the Owl Club, and he rose to the role of Assistant Director of Development in August 2012.

In his first year as a major gifts fundraiser, Bamonti helped double new gifts and pledges to generate record revenue for Temple Athletics. He helped lead the department bring in more than $4 million in new gifts and pledges after it reached the $3 million plateau in contributions only once prior. The Owls also established new practice facilities for the football and men's and women's basketball programs.

Bamonti graduated from Loyola Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts in history in 2003 and later earned his Master of Education in sport and recreation administration from Temple in 2010.

He worked as a paralegal for five years in the Philadelphia area before making his first foray into collegiate athletics as a Compliance Graduate Extern at Penn.
