Assets School is seeking a Director of Development who will be responsible for leading all aspects of the school’s annual fundraising initiatives. The Director is a member of the Advancement Department, working closely with the Director of Capital Campaigns and Director of Marketing and Communication. The Director of Development reports to the Head of School, works closely with the Board of Trustees, especially the Development and Marketing committees, and is a member of the Administrative Leadership Team.
This is an exciting time for Assets School and the Advancement Office. Within the past several years, the school has acquired a second campus, completed a capital campaign for the new Harry and Jeanette Weinberg K-4 Village, and reached all-time high marks for its annual gala and financial aid awarded.
This position requires a thoughtful person who is both collaborative and comfortable working with a high degree of autonomy. A successful candidate will have a vision for how to grow and build capacity within our department, as well as how Development advances the school’s mission.
More specific responsibilities include, but are not limited to:
- Lead all aspects of the annual giving program
- Lead the strategy and management of the annual fundraising gala. This includes table sales, venue management, silent and live auction, volunteers, programming, technology, vendors, VIP recognition and all other elements.

- Manage the school’s Honu Society for donors
- Collaborate with the Director of Capital Campaigns to identify and cultivate possible major gift donors
