To increase COE’s capacity to eliminate the tremendous gap in educational attainment between America's highest and lowest income students, Nonprofit HR has been exclusively retained to assist in the recruitment efforts for a Vice President of Development (VP). Reporting to the President, the VP is a member of the senior leadership team and has overall responsibility for leading the development function for COE. The VP is a strategic thinker and is responsible for developing a bold development plan and the fundraising strategies to achieve the plan.
Further, s/he will set goals, monitor work, and evaluate results to ensure that departmental and organizational objectives are met and are in line with the needs and mission of the organization. The VP is a key leader in advancing COE’s mission and strategic direction. The VP develops and leads COE’s efforts to enhance current and generate new programmatic and unrestricted funding. The VP will oversee and support the identification, cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship of individual, government, corporate, and foundation donors, and drive efforts to broaden the donor base and revenue streams.
The VP ensures that the organization is well positioned in a rapidly evolving and competitive environment. The VP ensures that strategies are clearly understood by all stakeholders and that the development office is achieving its strategic goals at an optimum pace. In collaboration with the President, s/he identifies and leads new business development opportunities and ensures highly productive and positive relationships for the benefit of COE. The VP serves as the Chief Fundraiser for the organization and successfully balances a (at times) rigorous travel schedule meeting with potential and current funders.
