RESPONSIBILITIES: Reporting to the Assistant Vice President for Alumni Relations and Development, the incumbent is primarily responsible for the identification, cultivation, and solicitation of gift prospects through meeting an annual goal of personal visits and solicitations. A significant portion of this position will be focused on identifying and cultivating new alumni prospects capable of giving at the major gift level. The individual will also develop solicitation strategies and coordinate the involvement of other administrators, faculty/staff, alumni and volunteers; maintain donor records on the donor database; attend events which facilitate contact with alumni prospects and donors; work closely with faculty, staff, and alumni volunteers to coordinate approaches on key initiatives and prospects; and perform other duties as assigned.

Education/Experience: Requires a Bachelor's degree and at least three years of progressive professional experience with fundraising or sales with a particular focus on building long-term, collaborative relationships with both internal and external stakeholders.
