|Description of Work Unit||
The University Advancement development team within the Walter Scott, Jr. College of Engineering at Colorado State University is seeking an Assistant Director of Development.
Who We Are
Located in the beautiful town of Fort Collins, Colorado, CSU is a premier land-grant university with world-class programs in education, outreach, and research. CSU has a student body of over 34,000 students, 7,400 employees, 240,000 living alumni, and annual research expenditures exceeding $350 million. Guided by the five supporting Principles of Community: Inclusion, Integrity, Respect, Service, and Social Justice, the University constantly pursues its mission and vision of access, research, teaching, service, and engagement.
Within CSU, the Division of University Advancement is integral to achieving and sustaining the University’s institutional excellence through fundraising and engagement efforts. Our purpose is to connect our alumni, friends, corporations, and foundations with the university to raise necessary financial support to advance the University’s mission and vision. With one of the leading development teams in the country, the Division most recently reached its $1 billion fundraising campaign goal 19 months ahead of schedule.
We seek an individual who see’s fundraising as a rewarding career, and is personally committed to, even has a passion for, expanding access to an excellent college education for bright young minds who wish to attend CSU and study in the Walter Scott, Jr. College of Engineering.
One of eight academic colleges at CSU, the Walter Scott, Jr. College of Engineering houses seven academic departments and schools, along with NOAA Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere (CIRA). Our graduates are employed by, or are leading, national engineering and technology companies across the US and around the world. Researchers in the college have made important contributions to global challenges in water, environment, climate, health, infrastructure and advanced technology.
We are seeking candidates who have a high level of motivation and enthusiasm for pursuing a career in higher-education fundraising. With a desire to build upon current development experience, you will hone skills in prospect identification and qualification, face-to-face engagement, and cultivation of current annual giving donors and major gift prospects. The ideal candidate will be highly self-motivated, willing to put in the time to establish strategies to build the college’s donor pipeline, while partnering with team fundraising leads on several major gift solicitations. This person will also help strengthen relationships with department heads and key faculty to develop a system to collect alumni relationship details and updated alumni contact information.
Under the direction of the Executive Director of Development, Mary Jarchow, and in partnership with the college’s fundraising team and the division’s prospect research team, this person will drive identification and qualification efforts to establish and build relationships with Colorado based donors and prospects, as well as those in highly-concentrated hubs around the country. While helping to build the major gift donor pipeline, you will solicit and secure $10,000-$25,000+ donations. This person will also have the opportunity to gain greater experience by working collaboratively with major gift fundraisers on the team to optimize gift support. This position will play a critical role in the ongoing and future success of the college’s ability to strive toward excellence. This person will also infuse diversity, and inclusion into all aspects of their role to contribute to inclusive excellence and to ensure colleagues and donors of all backgrounds feel represented and included.
