Washington University is tied for the 15th rank with Cornell University and Vanderbilt University in US News & World Report’s 2016 rankings of America’s “Top National Universities.” The same publication ranked the School of Medicine sixth in the nation, and the George Warren Brown School of Social Work was tied for first with the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor.

  • As the top-ranked school of social work in the nation, the Brown School is an international leader in policy and procedures to address challenges from poverty to productive aging.

  • The Institute for Public Health harnesses the multidisciplinary strengths of Washington University to address complex health issues facing St. Louis and communities worldwide.

Vice President for Development

Science History Institute

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 

The Science History Institute exists to promote an understanding of the place of science in cultural life, past and present. In 1982, the Center for the History of Chemistry was launched by the University of Pennsylvania and the American Chemical Society. It was renamed the Chemical Heritage Foundation in 1992 to better reflect its interdisciplinary nature and the widening scope of its programs and activities. It later dropped its ties with the university, becoming an independent, nonprofit entity, and moved to Philadelphia's historic district. After a major renovation of its building in 2008, the foundation opened a new museum and conference center. In 2013, the foundation built on its Chestnut Street property the John C. Haas Archive of Science and Business.

In December 2015 the Chemical Heritage Foundation and the Life Sciences Foundation, which had been based in California, merged. The organization then covered both the history of the life sciences and biotechnology, in addition to the history of the chemical sciences and engineering. In February 2018, in recognition of this, the organization changed its name to the Science History Institute. Though based in Philadelphia, the Institute has satellite offices in Berkeley, Boston, and Paris. Its major resources, available to specialists and the public alike, are its collections, among the largest of their kind in the world and still growing. To study these, funding is in place to attract up to 20 visiting fellows every year. In addition, prizes and medals are awarded to inspirational figures, meetings and lectures are organized including the scholarly Cain Conferences, research projects are continually being undertaken, exhibitions are presented in the museum, and oral histories are recorded. The Institute produces many public programs, as well as the magazine and podcast Distillations.

The Institute is committed to exploring the vital roles that science and technology have played in shaping the world and how that history is crucial to the future.

The Science History Institute is energized by the dynamic, forward-thinking, and collaborative vision of newly appointed Board Chair Richard Bolte and President and CEO Robert Anderson. Positioned extremely well to achieve its ambitious goals, the Institute is prioritizing the establishment of a stronger-than-ever development program that will engage new partners, enhance existing philanthropic relationships, and attain increasing levels of investment as the organization grows in its footprint and reach.

The Science History Institute seeks a seasoned fundraising professional to advance a comprehensive development program that raised approximately $2.4 million in FY18 toward an organizational operating budget of more than $11 million annually. Reporting to the President and CEO, the Vice President of Development will oversee a team of eight professionals, and s/he will serve as the lead executive responsible for maintaining and growing the Institute's base of individual and institutional support. The Vice President will be charged with building a sustainable major gifts-focused fundraising culture that is seamlessly integrated into the organization's programmatic and marketing initiatives. The Vice President will develop, implement, and lead all future annual, endowment, and capital campaigns.

Required qualifications and experience: dedication to the mission and goals of the Science History Institute; Bachelor's degree required, master's degree preferred; minimum of eight years of experience in progressively responsible development leadership positions, which includes work in all functional areas (individual giving, institutional giving, planned giving, stewardship, board relations), oversight of a comprehensive philanthropic program, and leadership in a major capital campaign; experience working in an academic, research-related enterprise, or other organization dedicated to science and technology is preferred; demonstrated ability to provide management oversight, leadership, and direction with at least three years of supervisory experience; particular strength in developing the case for support and strategic, complex, and innovative fundraising plans, and executing against those plans to achieve goals and objectives; demonstrated ability to strategically move individuals and institutions across the spectrum of prospect development, with a history of securing six and seven-figure gifts, including cultivation through solicitation and stewardship; demonstrated ability in planning and executing strategic communications to complement philanthropic initiatives; experience identifying, nurturing, and motivating board or other volunteer leaders.

IDEA Public Schools

Houston, Texas

About Us

IDEA Public Schools is one of the highest performing public charter school districts in the country and the fastest growing in Texas. We believe that all children, regardless of race or household income, deserve access to an education that will prepare them to get to and through a four-year college. We are unapologetic about our unwavering commitment to academic excellence and invest heavily in our teachers and leaders because our work wouldn’t be possible without their tremendous talent.

IDEA Greater Houston Area launched in 2017 and we are preparing for an expeditious launch plan. Houston is considered the most diverse city in America, yet children of color and children living in poverty continue to lack access to the highest quality schools. We are the fourth largest city, with more than 51 independent public school districts and the home base for two fantastic public charter school operators, Yes Prep and KIPP Texas -Houston. Houston is a city where connections matter, but work ethic is the currency of influence. Our reputation is based on economic opportunity and affordable living with a massive sprawl that exceeds the size of New Hampshire.  Despite the presence of great public charter schools and a strong district magnet school system, the need for more great schools is ever present. IDEA – Greater Houston Area will be a part of the solving the problem to offer more children a choice-filled life through a transformational public education.

Fully cognizant of the need across the Greater Houston Area, IDEA Public Schools launched with a commitment to open our first four schools in 2020 and follow with an ambitious growth plan to grow to 20 schools by 2025-26 and ultimately serve 15,000 students once fully enrolled.  

In the past year in we have:

  • Secured a $10M gift from Laura and John Arnold

  • Hired our first three Principals in Residence who have relocated to McAllen, Texas to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to prepare them to launch and lead our first campuses

  • Second, s/he will ensure best-in-class development infrastructure and donor stewardship in Greater Houston Area, which will cement ongoing investment of donors as they leave inspired by expeditious and inspiring communication.

  • Third, s/he will build and manage a corporate and individual giving campaign that will ultimately lead to a sustainable funding path for years to come.

  • Finally, s/he will work closely with the Executive Director to recruit and build our initial board of directors of at least five local high profile leaders.

Who we are looking for
You’re a visionary that operates with a fearless understanding that adults can and must do whatever it takes to ensure that children have access to great schools. However, you don’t live in the clouds and can easily operate as a planner, because you can’t imagine being able to achieve ambitious goals without a clear plan in place.  You have incredibly high standards for what you, your team and those you lead can accomplish. You lean into uncertainty and thrive in times when the next step is unknown. You set vision and direction for projects others deem unrealistic. You anticipate challenges, and when unexpected challenges arise, you press on with your vision in mind. In all of your interactions, people feel valued, clear on your purpose, and also believe their time was well-spent. You easily build relationships with others and strive to make everyone feel connected.

  • You are intellectually curious and the opportunity to work with two experienced fundraisers who will push you harder than you’ve ever been pushed before -- is invigorating.

  • You are eager to work in an environment where receiving constant adjusting feedback is expected, expectations are high and innovation is constant.

Regional Giving Associate

Educators for Excellence

About Us

Our nation’s history of racism and oppression have led to inequities across sectors of society, including education, leaving millions of students— including an overwhelming number of students of color and low-income students—unprepared for college, career, and life. While research shows that classroom teachers are the single most important in-school factor in improving student achievement, their diverse voices are consistently left out of education policy decisions. For far too long, teachers have been treated as subjects of change rather than as agents of change.

Founded by public school teachers, Educators for Excellence is a growing movement of 30,000 educators, united around a common set of values and principles for improving student learning and elevating the teaching profession. We work together to identify issues that impact our schools, create solutions to these challenges, and advocate for policies and programs that give all students access to a quality education.

What We Do

Our Theory of Change is grounded in two long-term goals that are inextricably linked: better outcomes for our students and the elevation of the quality and prestige of the teaching profession. We achieve this by:

  • Building a movement of forward-thinking teachers through grassroots organizing in communities across the country

  • Identifying and training teacher leaders within that broader movement to take on key positions of influence in their schools, districts, states, and perhaps most importantly, within their teachers unions

  • Creating teacher-led policy recommendations in order to bridge the divide between policymakers and the classroom

  • Advocating for implementation of teacher-generated policy ideas

  • Scaling this model to reach critical mass in the communities we serve and across the country

Educators for Excellence envisions an equitable and excellent education system that provides all students the opportunity to succeed and elevates the teaching profession.

The Opportunity

E4E has realized a number of critical achievements over the past several years, including rapid growth in staff, budget, and impact, and now stands poised to accelerate its progress over the next five years. As we move forward, we will focus on deepening teacher engagement, developing the vision and tools for transformative teacher leadership, and bringing internal systems to the next level to ensure the organization has the infrastructure, resources, and supports necessary to achieve our goals.

To support this work across our six chapters, our National Development Team is hiring a Regional Giving Associate (RGA). Reporting directly to the Director of Strategy and Regional Giving (DSRG), the RGA will support chapters as they work to build robust, partnership-driven portfolios of individual, foundation, and corporate donors. The RGA will work closely with the National Development Team and chapter development teams to coordinate best practice and resource sharing, ensuring strong organization-wide development operations and a strong team culture through the development and sharing of fundraising reports and team newsletters, materials creation for use in external meetings, development operations project management, and strategic thought-partnership support for chapter development staff. The RGA will also provide critical strategic capacity for chapters requiring additional fundraising support including prospect research, meeting preparation, and general portfolio management, as needed.

You Will:

Lead reporting and project management:

  • Work with the DSRG to design and execute strategy for chapter support and development team operations

  • Track, manage, and prioritize cross-cutting projects for the National Development Team aligned to our team priorities, including annual forecasting and impact planning

You Have:

Minimum Requirement(s):

  • Tenacity, grit, and the ability to take initiative and thrive in a fast-paced, entrepreneurial environment

  • Demonstrated record as both a team player and a self-starter, including a commitment to building a strong development team culture across chapters

  • Grace, professionalism, excellent judgment, discretion and high ethical standards

  • Exceptional organization skills, a high level of efficiency, a strong customer service orientation, and an ability to manage operations and multiple projects at a time with precision

  • Commitment to supporting chapters to grow their base of of mission-aligned partners who are excited to bring their diverse resources (ideas, networks, time, skills, and experience, in addition to financial resources) to bear in support of our mission

  • Knowledge of Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint, and Word

Preferred:

  • Three years of experience supporting client management/sales/direct fundraising, preferably over a wide geography

  • A proven track record of success in supporting donor/client portfolio development

  • Respect and Professionalism: We act with personal responsibility, respect, and commitment to high quality work, to our organization and to each other

  • Growth Mindset: We intentionally create opportunities to develop ourselves and others in order to learn and continuously improve

Washington University in St. Louis

Founded in 1853, Washington University is one of the nation’s premier institutions of higher education, dedicated to challenging its faculty and students alike to seek new knowledge and greater understanding of an ever-changing, multicultural world. The university is counted among the world’s leaders in teaching and research, and draws students and faculty from all 50 states and more than 100 countries. Its programs, administration, facilities, resources, and activities combine to further its mission of teaching, research, and service to society.

Washington University is tied for the 15th rank with Cornell University and Vanderbilt University in US News & World Report’s 2016 rankings of America’s “Top National Universities.” The same publication ranked the School of Medicine sixth in the nation, and the George Warren Brown School of Social Work was tied for first with the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor.

Approximately 90 percent of undergraduates come from outside Missouri. A total of 1,730 students enrolled in the Class of 2019, selected from more than 29,200 applicants. Students at Washington University have been recognized with the Rhodes, Fulbright, Marshall, Beinecke, and Truman Scholarships and the Goldwater, Mellon, Putnam, National Science Foundation, and National Graduate Fellowships, as well as the Howard Hughes Fellowship for undergraduate research.

The university offers more than 90 programs and almost 1,900 courses leading to bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees in a broad spectrum of traditional and interdisciplinary fields, with additional opportunities for minor concentrations and individualized programs. More than 12,800 full-time and about 1,600 part-time students benefit from and contribute to the studies of arts and sciences, architecture, art, business, engineering, law, medicine, and social work. The following are just a few examples of the significant contributions Washington University is making to society through this work:

  • Washington University School of Medicine is leading innovative research to understand the genetic origins of diseases ranging from cancer and diabetes to autism and Alzheimer’s, with the aim of developing more effective diagnoses and treatments.

  • The Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine has earned the highest possible rating—“exceptional”—from the National Cancer Institute. The center serves nearly 9,000 newly diagnosed cancer patients each year.

  • As the top-ranked school of social work in the nation, the Brown School is an international leader in policy and procedures to address challenges from poverty to productive aging.

  • The Institute for Public Health harnesses the multidisciplinary strengths of Washington University to address complex health issues facing St. Louis and communities worldwide.

  • Each year, Washington University physicians provide clinical care to nearly 500,000 children and adults at 49 clinical sites across the St. Louis metropolitan area.

  • Research initiatives across the university are laying the scientific groundwork to help meet the global need for abundant, clean, and economical energy.

  • Washington University was one of the founders of the Cortex Innovation Community in midtown St. Louis, which so far has attracted more than $550 million in investment and generated more than 3,600 permanent jobs in the Cortex District. In the last 48 months, Cortex development has resulted in an additional $500 million of private investment and development in 20 surrounding neighborhood projects.

  • Washington University collaborates with 29 leading institutions worldwide to educate future leaders and address global challenges such as energy and sustainability, public health, education, and international understanding. These efforts are carried out through the McDonnell International Scholars Academy.

The university’s operating budget for fiscal year 2015 topped $2.7 billion. As of June 30, 2016, the market value of the endowment was $6.5 billion.
