Chief Development Officer

Job Description:

The Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with the Harlem Academy in the search for a chief development officer.

Reporting to the head of school, the chief development officer is a key member of the school’s leadership team, with a focus on leading and expanding the school’s programs to raise funds and strengthen relationships with supporters. Harlem Academy offers the right candidate an opportunity to collaborate with the head of school in strategic planning, work alongside a dynamic and engaged board and team, and advance a transformational education for an underserved population.

Harlem Academy is at a pivotal moment in its evolution. Since its founding in 2004, Harlem Academy has operated in rented space with no room for expansion. To position the school for continued growth from 125 to 400 students, the trustees of Harlem Academy have acquired a half-acre, undeveloped lot in the heart of the communities it serves. The chief development officerwill advance Harlem Academy’s capital campaign to establish the school as a permanent pathway to opportunity for low-income children.

Led by a strong Board, with capacity and dedication to its mission, Harlem Academy is charged with building on an outstanding trajectory. It is looking for a strategic leader with a proven track record in fundraising to join Harlem Academy during this exciting period of growth. It seeks an individual with the skill set needed to design and execute a comprehensive development and communications strategy, leading the development team in expanding the school’s annual fund, capital campaign, major donor portfolio, and events. The chief development officer must able to manage multiple, complex responsibilities, empower team members to maximize their impact, and be relentlessly committed to Harlem Academy’s mission.

Harlem Academy is a private school (grades 1-8) that guides promising, low-income children to thrive at the highest academic levels and one day make a mark on the world. Students are admitted based on merit, and no child is turned away because of an inability to pay. Tuition is set on a sliding scale, and Harlem Academy raises $3.5M per year to meet the financial aid needs of its low-income population. Given this funding model, the chief development officer plays a central role in the realization of the school’s mission through their leadership of the development team in expanding annual fundraising.

All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and résumé.

What I liked about the service is that it had such a comprehensive collection of jobs! I was using a number of sites previously and this took up so much time, but in joining EmploymentCrossing, I was able to stop going from site to site and was able to find everything I needed on EmploymentCrossing.
