Position will engage in networking, proposal writing, presenting, and leading a team of fundraising professionals. Position sets target donation goals and sees them to fruition via events and campaigns, on time and on budget.

The Vice President will join a visionary new President as she charts the future course for Bay Path and its diverse students who ardently embrace Bay Path's motto: Carpe Diem (Seize the Day). • S/he/they will work collaboratively to create, develop, implement and achieve donor-centric strategic plans with a new set of priorities with increasing private support incrementally and exponentially as a new vision for Bay Path is implemented over the next 3-5 years. • The Vice President will be an important force and advocate for strategic campaigns to sustain and expand Bay Path's mission impact and outcomes, working collaboratively with Trustees, administration, faculty, other councils, staff and voluntary leadership. The Vice President will work closely with the President to effectively communicate the 'new vision' and build a new base of major gift donors, who by virtue of known interests, deeply value Bay Path's institutional priorities and may be open to making significant contributions toward these (outright or pledged).
Duties and Responsibilities:
• Lead the Development Office: Annual Fund, Alumni Engagement, Major & Planned Gifts, Stewardship, Administrative Services, expanding the participation rates of Alumni giving, as well as increasing gifts; building key donor-centric programs to motivate and engage Alumni in deepening their commitment to Bay Path; increasing the pipeline of donors entering the major gift levels ($25,000+ annual or restricted gifts); strengthening all data and technology infrastructure supporting the development program; ensuring that stewardship & recognition of all donors remains a priority.
