Job Description

Associate Director of Development, College of Education
University of Oregon

Associate Director of Development, College of Education University Advancement

UO Advancement and the College of Education are looking for a self-motivated and enthusiastic employee to join our fundraising team. Come be a part of a high performing team that grants donors an opportunity to be a part of the University of Oregon College of Education’s mission: Making Educational and Social Systems Work for All. Featuring nationally ranked academic programs, and prominent teaching and research faculty, the University of Oregon College of Education includes an alliance of nationally prominent centers, institutes, and affiliated research and outreach units. The college distinguishes itself by developing the capabilities of professional educators and clinicians, advancing a culture of effective professional practice through research and evidence-based support, and strengthening the capacity and accountability of community and education agencies to design, provide and continuously improve individual and organizational learning, performance and progress.

University Advancement is responsible for strategically positioning the UO with its various constituents and securing resources to further its aims. The division consists of approximately 200 employees primarily working out of Eugene, with offices in Portland and Bend. Departments within University Advancement include: Advancement/UO Alumni Association; Development; Stewardship and Public Events; Advancement Operations; Federal Affairs; and State and Community Affairs.

Development in University Advancement is a comprehensive fundraising department supporting the entire university campus with an overall mission to sustain and enhance excellence at the University of Oregon. The Associate Director of Development works as part of Development to promote university fundraising priorities and image to alumni, parents, and friends of the university. The associate director will be assigned to a specific unit and is responsible for identification, cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship of donors and new prospects. This position will concentrate on gifts in the “leadership annual giving” ($2,500 - $24,999) and non-major gift ($25,000 - $99,999) ranges. Occasional work in the major gift ($100k+) range is possible depending upon donor interest, but is not a focus of the position.

Job Requirements

This position is field-oriented, requiring frequent travel and direct contact with donors and donor prospects. The associate director works collaboratively with colleagues in the assigned unit, Development, and across the university to identify new prospects and strategically cultivate alumni, parents, and friends. The associate director will be responsible for meeting fundraising goals as they relate to the strategic needs of the university and the assigned unit, priority, or region. Performance as measured against these goals will be evaluated annually.

Reporting directly to the Senior Director of Development, this position is part of the College of Education development program. The associate director solicits gifts to support the priorities of the college and contributes to donor pipeline strategies and development. The senior director is the lead development officer for the college and reports jointly to the Dean of the College of Education and the Senior Associate Vice President for Development. Travel within Oregon as well as to cities in other states up to 60% of the time is an essential expectation of this position. This position is jointly funded by the College of Education and University Advancement.

This role is a fantastic opportunity to grow as a frontline fundraiser, working with influential stakeholders, passionate alumni, and important donors for the College of Education. The associate director will join a collaborative, professional development environment in which team members across academic units and colleges regularly learn from, connect with and support each other.
