Pablo Banhos earned a Bachelor of Arts in both Political Science and International Studies, as well as a Master of Arts in International and Comparative Politics.
While at Wright State University, Banhos started his career in higher education philanthropy which set a solid foundation for where he is now. As Director of Major Gifts at Ohio Wesleyan University, Banhos leads a team of seven fundraising professionals who build relationships with alumni, parents, and friends of Ohio Wesleyan with the goal of securing philanthropic support for the students, faculty, staff, and programs. Banhos’s most recent notable accomplishments include raising nearly $10 million for Ohio Wesleyan and providing leadership to an Advancement team which has currently raised $105 million toward a $200 million comprehensive campaign goal.
Because of donor generosity at Wright State University, Banhos was able to achieve his dream of swimming and receiving an education from an American university. His personal accomplishments at Wright State and beyond make him an enthusiastic higher education professional who raises money to provide a similar education for deserving students. Banhos, his wife, and his one-year-old son reside in Columbus.
