Kelli Gill Bolsters the Legacy Team as its New Development Manager

August 9, 2021


August 9, 2021 (Pasadena, CA):  The Rose Bowl Legacy Foundation, the 501c3 non-profit organization that raises funds to support the preservation, protection and enhancement of the Rose Bowl Stadium’s future as a National Historic Landmark has announced Kelli Gill as its new Development Manager.

Gill has accumulated over two decades of experience in the sports industry guiding external personnel and departments in marketing, sales, and public-facing environments.  She comes to America’s Stadium from her most recent stop at Long Beach State University where she oversaw the marketing department in conjunction with sales, community relations, social and video marketing, and overall external communications for the past seven-plus years.

The addition of Gill bolsters a Legacy Foundation team that has grown leaps and bounds since 2015, the time of its last expansion.  To date since the Foundation was founded in 2010, Legacy has signed more than $38 million in private gifts and pledges in support of many aspects of the Rose Bowl Stadium, $25 million of which has been recorded since the expansion.

“To be able to contribute my passion for people and relationships towards something as globally-iconic and important as the Rose Bowl Stadium is special,” said Gill.  “This venue has created generational memories for fans from around the world, and it will be exciting to harness that energy in support of Legacy’s promise to America’s Stadium.”

Gill’s dynamic role with the Legacy Foundation as the venue’s centennial approaches will oversee items such as the continued growth of its brick program, the new Alumni Network, its donor stewardship and cultivation functions, management of the financial controls and 501c3 oversight, and special events.

“Having someone of Kelli’s natural ability to develop and grow relationships in a genuine nature will have an immediate impact on our efforts to continue advancing the Rose Bowl Stadium into our centennial years,” said Dedan Brozino, Chief Development Officer.  “Her industry knowledge, competitive team attitude, and proven track record will undoubtedly have a positive effect on the growth of the Legacy family’s philanthropic support at this Landmark.” 

Originally from Arvada, Colorado, Gill is a graduate of Regis University with a master’s degree in Sport Management from Long Beach State University.
