Ruth Hendren
Associate Director of Development

As Leeds Alumnus (Marketing, ‘11), Ruth is thrilled to reengage with Leeds and CU Boulder as a member of the Advancement Team. Ruth discovered her love for philanthropy at a young age when her family became involved with JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation). Her passion stuck with her through her time at Leeds, leading her to an emphasis in Marketing.

Upon graduating, Ruth join the staff of the JDRF Rocky Mountain Chapter, working to find a cure for type 1 diabetes through individual and event-based fundraising. After seven years at JDRF, Ruth was inclined to return to CU Boulder to engage with fellow alumni and donors. Now serving as Associate Director of Development, she works with individuals on the East Coast and California, including her hometown of Raleigh, North Carolina.
