Description: Portland Adventist Academy seeks an experienced Development Director to work closely with the principal and Board of Trustees to develop and execute a comprehensive fundraising plan. This includes a capital campaign designed to raise the funds necessary to finance a total campus redevelopment project, an annual campaign aimed at engaging our alumni and friends in supporting student scholarships, and connecting donors and special school projects in a way that meet the needs of both the individual and the institution. The ability to secure foundation grants, foster positive relationships with major donors, and build enthusiasm across a broad base of school supporters is essential, as is an attention to the details of donor reports and analysis and alumni database management. A willingness to roll up the sleeves and work alongside volunteers to bring about successful fundraising events is a must. This position reports directly to the principal.
Experience: To be considered, a candidate must have five or more years of fundraising experience with demonstrated success in generating giving in excess of $600,000 per year over a number of years. Fundamental to success is a passion for Adventist education and the gift of communicating this passion in both oral and written forms, the ability to engage with a wide range of donors and build long-term relationships, the initiative to work both independently and as a member of the team, strong time-management and organizational skills, and knowledge of The Raiser’s Edge. A candidate must possess the legal right to work in the United States.
