I am pleased to announce that a new position of Associate Director, Student Philanthropy is now posted on the HR jobs site. There is a preferred candidate for this new role.
This position reports to the Director of Interest Groups within Annual Giving Programs. The summary responsibilities of the position follow:
The Associate Director, Student Philanthropy is responsible for the development and implementation of an integrated student philanthropy model in support of objectives of the Development Office and the University as a whole. This position requires direct coordination with other partnering organizations within the university including Student Affairs, the Academy, Institutes and Centers, the Alumni Association, etc. A primary requirement of the role is to develop programs that engage students in an ongoing dialogue on philanthropy and its role in their lives and the world. This role will be responsible for achieving student participation percentage targets. The position will also oversee students staffing the Annual Giving Programs phone center and students engaged in philanthropic outreach to the student body. This position will also be responsible for interaction with the Career Center to explore and develop opportunities for students interested in a career path in philanthropy.
Specific objectives are to raise participation in Notre Dame’s senior class gift/pledge to a best-in-class level versus peer institutions, which would mean an 80% or greater participation level for the current senior class gift program. The longer term goal of this position is to raise the young alumni participation rate in giving to Notre Dame to greater than 50% through conversion of the focus for giving as undergraduates to a multi-year pledge commitment versus a one-time senior class gift.
Best regards, Brian Brian Couch, Sr. Director Annual Giving Programs
