The successful candidates will have fund-raising experience in an educational, charitable, or non-profit organization. Degree of experience required varies depending on the level of the position. A bachelor's degree, or equivalent, is required. An advanced degree would be a plus. Strong interpersonal skills and demonstrated written and oral presentation skills are essential. Travel is required for director, associate director, and assistant director positions.
