The College of Professional Studies at Northeastern University seeks a self-motivated, entrepreneurial and mission-driven development professional to serve as its new Director of Major Gifts. The Director will cultivate and steward longstanding philanthropic relationships with individuals, corporations and foundations while identifying new champions to support the College in recognition of the unique role it has played in providing access to post-traditional, professionally meaningful education. The Director of Major Gifts will collaboratively examine CPS’s past and current fundraising structure and success and help chart a fundraising roadmap for the future. While caring for existing relationships, the Director will give attention to building a prospect pipeline that ensures the long-term sustainability of CPS. This will require personally developing and managing a portfolio of high-net worth prospects with direct involvement in the identification, qualification, cultivation, and solicitation of donors with the capacity to make a major, principal or planned gift. The Director will also be responsible for identifying and cultivating corporate and foundation prospects, developing funding proposals, and soliciting and securing philanthropic support.
