director of major gifts

Organization: Culver Educational Foundation
Date Posted: January 10, 2020

 

Culver Military Academy and Culver Girls Academy, together known as the Culver Academies, make up one of the leading private college preparatory boarding schools in North America.  Located in Culver, Indiana they share a beautiful 1800 acre campus on the shores of Lake Maxinkuckee in Northern Indiana. 

Enrollment is approximately 840 students made up of approximately 57% boys and 43% girls in grades nine through twelve.  Typically students come from thirty-five states and twenty-five countries.  International students normally make up twenty percent of the student population. 

The Culver Summer Schools and Camps enroll approximately 1400 students each summer ranging in age from seven through seventeen.  Students typically come from forty states and forty countries with international students making up about one-third of the total enrollment.  The resulting diversity is a valuable experience for our students. 

The Culver Mission for both The Culver Academies and the Culver Summer Schools and Camps reads:

“Culver educates its students for leadership and responsible citizenship in society by developing and nurturing the whole individual - mind, spirit, and body - through an integrated curriculum that emphasizes the cultivation of character.” 

Consistent with that mission of educating students for leadership and responsible citizenship in society, we believe what distinguishes Culver from other fine secondary schools is that while it offers academics, athletic and other extracurricular opportunities second to none, Culver is the leader in delivering practical experience and instruction in leadership for all students and emphasizing high expectations for personal responsibility and integrity.  The leadership principles we seek to teach and develop are those that apply to leaders in all walks of life. 

RESPONSIBILITIES: The Director of Major Gifts develops and oversees the Major Giving fundraising program in support of the CEF mission and vision as established by the CEF Board of Trustees.  The Director, in coordination with the Chief Advancement Officer, staffs and supervises the Major Giving fundraising priorities as determined by the Head of Schools, the Chairman of the CEF Board of Trustees and other appropriate key volunteers and also manages the Major Gifts Officer team, overseeing their development and execution strategies for donors with the capacity to make gifts of $100,000 or more, culminating in the receipt of gifts that match donors' interests and capacity with the needs of Culver Academies.  Additionally, the Director manages a portfolio of 75 prospects, cultivating, soliciting, and stewarding at the $100,000 or more gift level for current and deferred gifts. 

In addition to regular duties, this role is expected to participate in other activities such as coach an athletic team, perform student supervisory and chaperone duties, and otherwise engage in other such duties as may be assigned to support the school and its Mission. 

REQUIREMENTS: Applicants must possess a bachelor’s degree and ten or more years of demonstrated fundraising success and development managerial experience at a secondary or higher education level, with $1,000,000 or more gifts secured annually; must possess knowledge of solicitation strategies, techniques, and long-range planning processes and will have highly-developed interpersonal and managerial skills. 

The successful candidate will have general knowledge of secondary school fundraising, including Annual Giving, Planned Giving, Capital Campaigns, Foundation solicitations, Communications, and Special Events. 

BENEFITS: Culver offers a comprehensive benefit package for full-time employees immediately upon hire. Benefits include Medical/Vision, Dental, a Flexible Spending Account, Life Insurance, a 403b retirement account with a very generous company match, use of our on-site Fitness Center, a FREE on-site Health Clinic including various FREE generic medications, FREE meals in the Dining Hall, limited laundry and dry cleaning services, 10 paid holidays, 200 hours of paid vacation time, and a discount at the Campus Store and at the Uniform Shop.
