Jordie Kindervater is in his third year with the Blue & White Fund and his first as Major Gift Officer. In his current role, Kindervater has oversight the Shareholders Society, manages all BWF major giving initiatives and contributes to developing fundraising strategies for each of UB’s 16 sports.

During Kindervater’s time as Assistant Director for Development, the BWF experienced two consecutive record breaking fundraising years. Much of this growth can be attributed to a 170% increase in membership and three consecutive years of cash collection increases (FY14: 19%, FY15: 69%, FY16: 32%). Former student-athlete giving also reached an all-time high, experiencing an 84% increase in Block B letter winner association membership over the course of a three year period.

Prior to transitioning into development, Kindervater served as the Assistant Men’s Tennis Coach at the University at Buffalo and the University of Central Florida. While at UB, Kindervater was named ITA Northeast Region Assistant Coach of the Year in 2011 and his teams took home Mid-American Conference regular season titles in 2010 and 2012. During his time at UCF, Kindervater contributed to landing the program’s first top 20 nationally ranked recruiting class in 2012.

Originally from St. John’s, Newfoundland, Kindervater earned his B.S. from the University of Alabama where he was a four year letter winner and three year captain for the men’s tennis team. He also received his MSA from Canisius College in 2012.

Jordie and his wife Sarah reside in Clarence with their one year old daughter, Claire.
